Ok, i bought my GSI about 5 months ago now and the engine was sound although it had done 105,000 i wasn't too worried. I always check the oil and water levels and do general things to mantain it.
Anyway i was going on a long journey and when i checked the oil ( surprisingly there was none in there). So with the help of someone else (might i add) we put some in, it seemed fine. At some point in the next week i bought a new air filter for it and about a week from that there was a little puddle of oil just under where the air filter is attatched.
I didn't think this looked right so i checked my oil and it was way over the maximum?
To cut a long story shorter, the car started coughing and spluttering so i had some oil drained out. I then thought everything was fine but on the way back from Aldershot on Monday the car started pulling back, it didnt want to go and then when i got it to my house it was idling from 1000 to 100 constantly going up and down. I panicked and quickly took it up to my local garge where they took some more oil out.
I thought after that it should be ok. But this morning i started it and when i moved off it just wouldnt go it was pulling back really hard and making really load spluttery noises.
If anyone knows what it may be please help me as i have never had trouble with this before.
