first make sure all ur breathers are clean and clear ,then check ur turbo ,ie turbine play ,make sure ur engine is switched off ,as otherwise u cud lose ur finger ends,,, is the car smokeing from the rear ,blue ,,, dose it get worse when the engine warms up ,etc ,,,,as it could be worn piston rings/oil rings which can cause the same problem ,,

Hi thats either the EGR valve - sounds like its stuck open - or it's a breather which has lost its gauze which should catch the oil drops and let them drip back in to the engine - either way its not right - try the muddies for more info www.muddyfrontera.co.uk
cheers
