    Default 2.0 dti won't start no compression

    Hi all

    My Vectra recently started showing the oil light on I checked the oil level and it was fine but when I was away and the wife was using it she put 3 litres of oil in and it started to smoke so her dad looked at it and drained the oil out and put the right amount of fresh in. He then drove it round the block and it was smoking and started to rev it's self up so he turned it off and it caried on running after a short while it cut out.

    Now it won't start and it turns over slightly faster than normal as if there is no compression on a few of the cylinders

    Any ideas

    now then boro lad.. it sounds like its been running on due to being over filled.

    thats when the oil is forced up into the pistons and it burns and can make the car rev to over 10.000 rpm!..

    if you'v no compression now it dusnt look good pal.

    Hi I assumed it was running of it's own oil as that's te only thing it could run off once the key is out but I thort it could only run of it's own oil when it has been vaporised by the turbo.

    If a seal has gone what seal is it likly to be and cost of repair

    Thanks
