    Default Please Help: Vauxhall Corsa B Mixing Petrol and Oil ?

    Hi All,

    It seems my corsa is consuming too much fuel, and when I open the engine oil lid and smell it, it smells a bit like petrol/gas.

    Also, the car has been parked for about 8 months now, I drive it on first gear in my backyard now and then, on first gear, and it seems to consume too much fuel.

    Any ideas?


    Thank you

    John

    Probably the piston rings are stuck.

    Thanks Danno.

    Do you know if it would be expensive to fix?

    i think there is a product on the market that you put down plug holes and leave it to do it's work but i don't know what it is called, have a look in halfrauds.
