  • Oil Smell

    Hey all,

    Sometimes my VXR leaks an oil smell into the cabin, mainly if I'm in a heavy foot mood. Any ideas what I should look at it? A filter would emit the smell constantly wouldn't it?

    more than likely turbo m8. look underneath could be leaky seals or oil return pipe

      Probably oil return pipe.. fairly common on Astra's... mine needed it doing at 6k miles

        Oil restrictor bolt seems to cure this prob alot doesn't it ???

        If the car is under warranty then def just keep going to the dealers and kicking up stick buddy

            Vauxhall do not do the oil restrictor bolt, you get it from Regal.

              It will be oil leaking from the turbo return pipe , its quite common and easily fixed if you are still in warranty
