Trust me i dont wish to depress you , unfortunately i do this for a living and i see the bad ones .. at the end of the day though im only guessing .. i cant see your car to access it .

Spark plug .. it wasnt tight enough or it didnt seal , thats normal blow back .. time to be concerned is when the plug tip itself is oily .

Any vacumn pipe detatched could well cause the air leak between maf and throttle so thats looking good.

Im going to defer on the oil in the Y peice the tapping noise and the oil usuage and let a garage look at it .. i have ideas but i think for now ive given enough bad news and would rather defer it to a garage to diagnose .

If you scroll back on this post .. its only you and me talking Sad

That bad huh ...

I'm not too concerned about any turbo leak. Its old, its high mileage and as long as the oil consumption isn't excessive and it can pass the UK emission testing then I'm good with that.

The occasional tapping if its not bore scoring, perhaps a valve getting hit, timing chain/guide, etc as I think bank 1 is the side I'm getting the P0011 on. Assuming bank 1 is the side with the AOS. Went to start it up just now and the bloody thing is quiet again.

Be very interested to know what your thinking, and then see if my local(ish) specialist is interested or whether it'd be worth a trip further afield. I wont get depressed, I'll just get rid, or sue the trader. You definitely seem to be thinking its on the FUBAR end of the scale instead of water pump, actuators etc.

Its better to find out now then after sinking new tyres, brakes, turbos etc into it.

You rarely see a Cayenne in the UK; especially in Norfolk, so its never going to get too busy here, but hey I appreciate your help enormously.

I'd pay a certain amount to sort it, but don't want to get silly.
Encourage alternative fuels, use all the petrol!
