Help Me!

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, 

im new to the Lupo game, I have got a 1.4 16V 1999 Fantasia green 75bhp Lupo. I love it dearly however it is starting to make my blood boil.. it leaking oil from this pipe I believe however I’m not 100% sure, I want to replace this to start with as it’s the only place I can see drips coming from however due to my lack of knowledge I’m unsure what this is called 😩 does anyone have any idea what’s it’s called and where I can get one from? 

 

Thanks in advance

Looks like EGR valve, there shouldnt be oil coming out of there. Take it off and give it all a good clean up.

Edit: nice car!

Yeah, the oil looks like it is running down this pipe, coming from somewhere else... try and trace it further up. Inside that pipe in the pic is just exhaust gas (if it is the EGR valve). My guess would be the valve (cam) cover seal is leaking.

I thought it might be a press car! Not bad for my first car haha! 

Side note, do you know what rear lights these are because they look far better/ more stock than what’s currently on the car 

thanks

What's not right? Anything we can help you get this iconic car back to new condition again?

runs super super rich, fuel economy is bloody awful. 

it's got an intake that has been bodged in by the previous owner just loads of little things that eventually mount up and you end up not knowing where to start. 

all in good time. should be on the road before the end of the year. 

thanks for helping me though.

Checked the air filter? Do you have a diagnostics cable or bluetooth thingy? Rich usually means ECU thinks it's a cold engine, or it's getting more air than it really is.
