Hi peeps this is my first post hope you can help me. I have been given an espace 02 plate 2.2dci as I took it for a test drive before buy it and this is what happened test drove it for aprox 45-60 min took it home then decided to take it to a friend of mine to put it on a ramp and look underneath for me but never got there I was driving for about 2 mins then the stop light came on so I stopped let everything calm down started it again and was fine for about 2 min then done it again so I went to pull over switched the ignition of but the car kept running and then went full revs for a few seconds I then dumped the clutch in a high gear and managed to stop the engine but did poor out a huge amount of white smoke and left an oily deposit at the rear of the car once every thing had calmed down I dipped the oil
stick and it was aprox 3 inches above the full mark (wtf) I thought, so anyway managed to get it home by towing it I've since started the car and it idles ok dipped the stick again and it's 1 inch above the full mark but it still smokes and I think it will for a bit but Iam going to drop the oil
and refresh it with filters and bits just wondered if anyone could give me some advice on why,how, and what can I do to test it to see what has gone on it because at the mo the only thing I can think is over filed with oil
from last owner might I add not got, any avice will be much apretiated many thanks in advance Matt.
