Engine conversion VR6 to 16v

Postby Corolla2006 » Sat Jan 12, 2019 6:41 am

Guys my mk2 16v is spotting oil out the exhaust. Us this as serious as I think it is?
If so I would consider a conversion to the vr6. Any recommendation as to where to buy

Well on the bright side it should stop your exhaust from rotting out!

But on a more serious note, will probably fail on emissions at next MOT if there is a problem.

It might not be terminal, does is smoke?
I might just be valve oil seals, a little bit involved but not too bad if you have some half decent DIY driveway mechanics skills.

But I'm sure there's people that are more mechanically minded than me to shed a bit more light on the situation and suggest other issues.

The car doesn't smoke. I think it's a seal problem.
I'm gonna test the car next year as it will then be a vintage. Then the tax will be in my budget. Tight now it's €680.00 :boke:
