    Disconnect the fuel pressure regulator vacuum pipe and run it, you should block the manifold port but it may not be necessary, I want to know if fuel comes out of the vacuum pipe.

    Tried that some time ago and no fuel came out of the vacuum pipe. Hence I then discounted the pressure regulator.

    Yes it is a weird one. I even checked the plastic dipstick tube with the intention that perhaps someone had fitted a longer one and in actual fact I was overflowing with oil. Alas that part is the correct part and the oil level is correct. What I don't get is why the car drove faultlessly for so long after purchase.

    As a TEMPORARY measure, disconnect the oil cap to intake hose and seal the intake leaving the vento to breath to atmosphere and then see what it does. Remember doing this releases highly toxic gases into the air so is illegal and can be dangerous if it gets into the cabin.

    I've plugged the intake side and left the oil cap side open. Is this correct, or the other way around?

    Yes but be aware oil may blow out so it is best directed into a can via a hose.

    Ok, I haven't looked under the bonnet to see the aftermath but she has reported that it's been smoking severely. I reckon any oil I've topped up has probably burnt off. Ill check the level after work....

    Update: any oil I topped up yesterday has now been used up and smoked out. No oil evident around breather outlet. I did however see a new fault code of P1517 motronic power module relay.
