I must admit,the ' oil smell' doesn't sound very good.....

There is a post on cleaning the EGR valve on a 1.9dCi Lag 2 somewhere,so try a search and see if that looks the warned,though.The valves have a nasty tendency to get stuck in their housing,and they are easily damaged.From memory,their around £150 to buy new,so be prepared!.

I'd hate to be the profit of doom,but if you can smell burning oil ,then either you have a leak onto the exhaust system somewhere,or you could have the beginnings of the dreaded turbo failure.Let us know how you get on,and Good Luck.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
