300tdi smokey and using oil

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I've recently returned from a tour of the pyrenees in my 90 (2500 miles ). It was using oil before I went but as the journey progressed it got smokier and used more oil, a gallon over the journey. I suspect it's rings there is 235000 miles on it. However I took the crankcase breather off the inlet pipe before the turbo and the grey blue smoke increased 10 fold. This seems strange. Has anybody any ideas why this would affect it like this before I swap in my spare engine.

Cheers gary
