After elimating headgasket failure as te cause for excessive white smoke i checked my breather pipe to see if it was blocked, which im not 100% certain but i think it is... Reason being that i could only really get to one end of it without the need to remove alot of things but it was deffinately gunged up and when i started the engine there was slight smoke coming through the breather on the intake end. Shall i have this replaced?
After checking the breather i thought id check the plenum as i know i have a fairly bad oil leak from what seems to rocker and from what ive been told. Upon removing the cover the plenum had an very thick build up of dried up oil and a bit of wet. Is this cause for concern?
