Hi guys
Looking for some help
Got an mk3 mondeo on a 53 plate and I have this rattle when I accelerate???
Also using about 2lts of oil a month no oil on the floor or smoking when going down the road
But I have noticed that it blows out a cloud of oil when I change down and the engine is hot
Had in it a garage and they have said that apart from a full engine strip to find out the problem
There is nothing they can do...
Anyone heard if anything like this and if so what the hell is it

Have something to contribute?

Could be head gasket, valve stem seals or damaged piston rings/scoured cylinders.
I think they're right and at least a head strip is required.
