    Default Yet another issue raising it's head

    Well it looks like another issues raising it's head....

    I keep getting the smell of burnt oil through the heater in the car...more so when been driving then stop and she idles....

    Had a look the other day and noticed oil on a bolt head thats connected from the sump to the block...looks like a breather or vent corrigated pipe...

    Oils got to be leaking from around the turbo area and from what we could see its dripping onto the downpipe where it runs under the sump...

    Getting cheesed-off with this car now..every other week its into the dealers....

    Its had a new turbo fitted-6/8 weeks ago...then last week it had to go back in because on a routime oil change the gasket from the return feed oil pipe was leaking....and now oil's coming from somewhere else...so any ideas of other areas it could be coming from

    We couldn't see any signs of weepage or runs from above...nothing eveident on the turbo but keep getting wiffs of burnt oil when under it so its got to be coming from somewhere....and wondering do i keep driving it with it being the turbo area where its leaking from....
    It's not massive amounts but must be enough for the smell to come through and when like last night i had to get out clean the headlights i left it ticking over after doing 100 or so miles and i could smell it again so cheesed off with this now...

    I'm being offerd a mondeo on an 08 plate the tdci zectec 140 version seriously considering this now as this allthough its had alot changed under warrenty every week somethings going or now leaking...

    Any ides chaps???
