    Vehicle : cdti 150

    Trim : sri

    Engine : z19dth

    Year : 2005

    Default i feel like james bond

    with all the smoke that comes from the exhausts at idle. was 90% with oil valve stem seals as it only smokes at idle, but had it on comp and it says i have faults on bank 1 & 2 on o2 sensor and exhaust temp sensor is at fault (somthing to do with voltage incorrect) i think, so would these two things cause oil burning.
    over the last couple of days it's been dropping revs to the point i thought it might cut out.
    all this has started since having exhausts upgraded to a 3" system put on,well apart from the o2 that i snapped then solderd up and just kept fogettin to have it replaced.
    but now im not driving it now till i can get it sorted....

    What engine is this on as your profile hasn't been updated.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Take the oil cap off and put your hand over the hole and feel if there's any pressure, that can tell you if its the valve stem seals. Could it not be the turbo seals, there more likely to go first IMO
