    Angry missing 7ltr of oil

    oil light came on today, first off i thought how as iv'e got plent of oil.
    pulled up no oil at all showing on stick, but it had 7ltr before xmas,

    i did have this prob a bit before so added the oil i had left around 3ltr then drove it all of a sudden checked again and there was way too much oil so drained the oil i put in, so now it's realy doing my head in, were could the oil go, turbo's fine i it got rekon'd not long back, seen the odd puff of smoke though now and again

    anyone got any ideas.....

    also just noticed today that if i go round bends the engine sqeakes,got hold of engine on pulled and pushed and it sqeakes, also does it if i close the boot of shake car.. was going to get a dump valve or a indution kit but i imagine the two probs are goin to be ££££££££

    Thats a hell of a lot of oil to lose in such a short time, surely you've got a leak. Hope no damage has been done to the engine.

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    The warning comes on when the dipstick is at min, the difference between min-max is only 1 litre. Top it up a bit at a time but you gotta let it get to the sump. To much oil is just as bad as not enough.

    take one off the pipes off the intercooler and see if that is full of oil.
