    Default 2.2 Elite (Direct) Having probs help.........

    I have a problem with my 2.2 direct (elite). As I am reading I see its not the best one to get should opted for the 3.2 v6. The car keeps smoking up and upon checking the below the air filter I see there is loads of all present.

    What could it be?

    Thanks

    No really mate, I/we cant work out what you mean. Smoking up...from the exhaust or from the engine bay? There is no possible way to get oil into your air box, and under it is just some AC pipes, power steering reservoir and inner wing. Give us more clear info and you should get all the answers you need.

    Thanks bruv. Its coming from the engine bay and the missus said some smoke was inside the car aswell. Bit strange. There is no signs of oils leak from the rocker covers but the area where the alternator, the oil is really thick.
    Someone says it might be the crankshaft seal that is gone, is there anyway of confirming it before I start to ripping stuff apart or does have a history of this sort of problem. Its quite tight around that area just trying to save any unecessary work.



    Thanks

    The chain cover is down there on the drivers side. The plastic oil filter tops can crack but that's on the other end of the lump. Is the Cam breather fully connected and not dripping oil down on the engine? My 2.2 head cracked and leaked oil down the back but never really seen a leak where your describing. Have you asked on the 2.2 forum mate (z22se.co.uk) there are guys who can strip and rebuild these lumps blindfolded over there.
