I'd be interested in hearing how this turns out Mat! I've got a 1.8L Petrol too, thought they were pretty good engines, Ford built, chain driven, reasonable capacity.. when I started reading the original post I was like ohhh noes!!! I hope this doesn't happen to me :P

Look forward to hearing how you've got on mate!

Sorry for the late update guys i THINK i have solved the problem, i literally took the the air filter pipe off the throttle body, left the engine running. A can of carb cleaner and a very dirty toothbrush later i maxed the revs to kick all of the white smoke out of the exhaust system. problem SEEMS to be fixed, until it breaks again i dont know.

 

Fixed that problem and a new one came about. I shall open a new thread but i have a rattling noise when i go over bums in the road.

Running over tramps is not nice.  The rattle you can hear is probably their teeth falling out. :D
