Astra - smoke from engine bay

Post by rmiddletonj » Sun Feb 09, 2020 1:41 am

Hi

Can anybody help please? I have had smoke coming from the engine bay for some time. When stationary and the cooling/heating (air con) is on, the smoke seems to also come inside the car.

I have had part of the exhaust replaced and also had an oil change as I thought it could be an oil leak and oil was burning.

I have uploaded a video via YouTube if anybody would mind reviewing? Hoping someone can help as unsure what this but don’t want a big bill for a garage to fix it!



Thanks

Oil leaking on the bottom of the cat. You sure your oil filter is tight enough?

I would hope as I’ve just had an oil filter change, will check it out, thanks!

Hello,

Just wanted to check, did you by any chance found out what the issue was? I had a full service and it started smoking in exactly the same way as yours.
