New Member, 2.0 NC, with an oil problem :-(

Postby Rob61280 » Wed Nov 02, 2016 11:40 pm

Hi Guys,

I'm new to MX5 ownership, previously having driven a Smart Roadster for 8+ years.

I've had my 2.0 NC1 for a couple of months, and really like the car so far, but it's using a lot of oil.

I have my fingers crossed it's just the PCV valve.

Could anyone recommend a garage in Wigan that might be able to help?

Thanks

Rob

Have you checked the PCV valve is free and not full of oil?

It's been a while, any feedback?
