Help Please...?? I recently brought an 04 plate v6 zetec s for the missus which imo is using rather a lot of oil, there are no signs of any leaks where the car is parked every night and the car doesn't smoke excessively.
The car has done 60k miles and was a police car before we bought it (tho through a third party) so should be well maintained.
The car does about 100 miles a week, but has used about 2.0 litres of oil in the last 2 weeks.
I recently fitted an induction kit and noticed that there was a build up of black oil like liquid in the inlet "duct" to the throttle body, I have cleaned the oil separator valve on the crankcase breather set up and checked the hoses etc (tho they shouldn't cause increased oil use should they ??).
The car does not smoke at all and runs great, except when the liquid build up in the throttle set up affects the MAF, after a clean out it is fine again.
Any suggestions :idea: would be very much appreciated.
