    I'm thinking oil separator now, seems that could be the culprit.

    Finally came to the conclusion that it's blow by. New engine or rebuild needed.
    Over the weekend I will get this confirmed and managed to source an engine complete for 250 so not that bad of a wallet buster.

    For anyone who gives a sh!t about my puddle jumper I reckon it needs an engine, so went about sourcing one supplied and fitted, I managed to get a deal for 500 which thankfully isn't that bad considering the amount of time to fit, so all in all she lives, next week he should come down with his flatbed and collect.
    My engine fitted is going for honing and oversized forged pistons fitted.

    I plan to turbo it so will remove this replacement lump and fit original converted to a turbo, I've saw a few 182s knocking out 300bhp on YouTube so this is where I aim to get her, unfortunately the siggy is in for some neglect but all in all the big stuff is done on her so not really neglected .

    We've had this wee Clio 7 years so it's hard to let go if anyone gets what I mean. Anyway I know the forum really only likes VX related but our girl is part of the family and Al shout from the heavens for her.

    Peace out

    Thanks howy, I thought I was the only who thought like that, my vec b would probably still be here if some kind guy never ran into the side of it, I loved it, I converted it from a 2.6 cdx to a 3.2 with high lift cams balanced lightened crank and flywheel she was a big mover mapped etc I missed her until I got our wee Clio puddle jumper, she lives on the red line on a track.
    Unlike my old vec, she was lovely, star silver aww I miss her she shocked a few vxr's.
    Lol

    Definitely, over the years I look at it an go you bloody cost me a fortune , but all in all once you drive it you forget all that. The grin factor for money is unreal, I swear drew it's like a go cart that can easy hit 130mph on track obvs, great on fuel averages 39-40 mpg in town , just no space or it would be my daily with petrol being cheaper and this returning more mpg

    I think people get attached to their cars, I had my vectra c for 13 years. That’s the longest ever I have kept a car. Then when the time came to replace it with the insignia, I didn’t want too see it go. That is when my youngest daughters boyfriends father stepped in to buy it. Still see the car running about. Made it so much easier knowing the car was going to stay local.

    A car can become like one of the family.so like the others I know exactly where you are going with this Alex .
    7 years is a fooking long time , through the good and bad it's out there looking at you .
    I have the same affection with one of my cars , and lucky my wife understands.
    As for people not giving a Shift about your Clio ,well I damm well do !
    I don't always comment because I'm just interfering and sometimes the posts go over my head and I get confused.so I just shut up and look .it part of my condition that I go quiet for a couple of weeks then "Wham Bang " .
    It's great to see a forum that caters for all makes and you can post what you want .
    Seems it's you with your Clio
    And me with my Saab.
    Long live the Clio .
    10-4 rubber Clio Engine !
    You solid cat !

    You always seem to put a smile on my face, definitely lucky to have the wife's we have as not many understands how weird us guys can get over a piece of metal, I'm a big fan of Saab's to mate especially the b204 engine, I've had a few in track cars.

    Anyone is more than welcome to post on my threads regardless, no discrimination here buddy..

    Peace out, long live the Swedish an french.
