    Some poor Land Rover owner recently finished a 2 year build, only to have the engine feed itself oil and blow itself up

    Same amount of smoke as a normal diesel.

    Dealt with one of these which went on the side of the road - funnily enough it was a Vauxhall Vectra Taxi, so I am sure that it had been maintained to the highest possible standard achievable, what with us all knowing how well taxi drivers look after their cars.... It finally went pop and after the smoke had cleared, the engine cover had actually melted itself onto the engine and taken out the clutch res too. She was rather warm under the engine.

    Agree seems normal for a diesel landy. Only difference I can see is that it's coming from the engine compartment and not the exhaust
