Its believed to have done aroundf 15k miles from new,,,but I can't prove this.
It uses a lot of oil. There are no leaks from the engine, and even if it was it would need to be quite a large leak for the amount it uses. So I'm guessing it is burning it. Although the car doesn't smoke at all....oil pressure is 75 running and around 55 tick over.
I have noticed black speks from exhaust if I park it next to something it leaves a black smattering on it. I'm guessing this could be deposits of oil?
I'm assuming the only option is a re bore and rebuild now?
Below is a pic of dipstick after doing 130 miles....the level was between max and minimum before starting. IMG_20190107_104530.jpg 84.98K 0 downloads
I must also add I have tried different oils, from valvoline vr1 to Halfords 20 50.
