Burning Oil Smell When Recirc Valve Flutters
Posted 02 October 2019 - 02:01 PM
I have changed the breather for a brand new pipe no oil seems to be leaking from there and have also upgraded the oil feed pipe from Courtney to the new one as there was a tiny bit of oil on that.
Everything else looks to be ok ok no oil seems to be leaking from anywhere just this damn smell cruising along normally it is fine but accelerate hard and it was into the cabin really does start to make you feel sick after a while.

Just to add to my post it it does not occur when idling normally, If get out of the car quickly to try and and figure out where the smell is coming from there is no smell anywhere just a normal hot engine smell which makes it even more frustrating it only seems to happen when I hear the boost sound fluttering off.
Can't understand why it's a burning oil smell but no smoke visible either anywhere!?

Hence why you smell it in lift off as oil pressure increases.

If you suspect the turbo, just de-couple the black 2" boost pipe from the turbo compressor outlet and see if the inside of it is covered in oil. If that isn't then take decouple the downpipe from the turbine side of the turbo and check that for oil (it should be a lightish to mid brown colour inside).
If you discover oil deposits on the turbine or compressor side, don't just assume it's the fault of the turbo seals, they might possibly be fine but too much crank case pressure is not allowing the oil to drain from the turbo. Remember the turbo oil drain is purely gravity fed, so if you have even 1 or 2 PSI in your crank case then it will "force" the turbo oil to exit via the seals (even if they are in good order).

Have replied to you PM.
As you live close to Courtenay Sport, why not give the car to them, as they know these cars inside out.

I would start with some cans of brake cleaner plus hot soapy water and give the engine a good degrease then you might find the oil leak on to a heat source. Remove undertray and top heat shield for inspection.
