This is quite a common problem,especially with the 2.2 dci engine,although as usual Renault wont admit the problem.The reason your engine throws the oil after a run and not when stationary is this problem is caused by the turbo pressurising the crankcase.You can rev the engine all day but when theres no load on it then the turbo is not working at full pressure and all is well.
The cure for the problem is to fit a new rocker cover which incorporates part of the inlet manifold.The breathing system on these engines is complicated and the rocker cover has to handle both inlet gases AND exhaust gases and although no one can explain why a new cover cures it,I suspect the plastic the cover is made of is not robust enough and either becomes porous or warped and this allows gases into the crankcase,pressurising it and focing oil out either through the dipstick or it blows out the blanking plug in the timing cover.
It is not a massive job to replace the rocker cover as long as the injectors come out easily.If they dont then youre in real trouble.Good luck,Duncan.

If inside of carb is getting oiled down, first place to look is at the pcv valve replace it and check supply line for vacuum. If nothing is leaking substantially with the engine running, A quart every 60 miles is way out of range and most likely from worn piston rings. Valve guides will contribute to this but would need to be worn severely for oil consumption as you indicate. If you are building internal pressure with pcv in place and working, rings are 99% sure to be worn and in need of replacement. (id do all bearings as well or replace engine.) Obviously i'm here, you are there so have a competent shop verify anything before spending $ on repair!!!
Hope this helps!!!

the clue is in the heater not performing correctly,YOU HAVE AN AIRLOCK,.....undo the topmost hot hose clip to vent any air making sure the expansion bottle is full.....use only antifreeze to keep up the right mix.

oil leaks are hard to identify by the blue smoke that you used to see. most of this smoke is burned up by the catalytic converter. at least until all of that oil plugs the converter up. you can tell if your burning oil by removing the spark plugs, and checking their appearance against diagnostic charts redily available on the internet. oil burning will leave a distinctive residue.

Welcome to Fixya
Error 41 is the butterfly spindle in the intake manifold just below where the hose from the intercooler joins. It should be open when engine running if it is closed it will cause boost issues and running problems.
Thank you for using Fixya!

Tips for a great answer:
The most common cause of blue exhaust smoke is oil leaking past engine seals and into the cylinders where it then mixes and burns with the fuel. This is most frequently seen in older or high mileage cars with worn seals and gaskets. It only requires a very small amount of oil leaking into the cylinders to cause excessive blue exhaust smoke.
Blue exhaust smoke only at start-up can indicate worn piston seals or damaged or worn valve guides which may also cause a rattling noise. An external engine oil leak can drip onto hot engine and exhaust parts causing what appears to be blue exhaust smoke. Other possible causes of blue exhaust smoke include: piston wear, worn valve seals, a dirty or non-functioning PCV valve, worn piston rings, an intake manifold gasket leak, worn engine oil seals and possibly even head gasket failure.
Oil leaking into the cylinders can cause a rough idle, misfire and fouled spark plugs. In addition, a reduction in power and oil loss can be indicators that the blue exhaust smoke is caused by an internal engine oil leak. Internal engine oil leaks can also allow fuel to mix with the oil in the crankcase which will degrade the oil and prevent it from adequately protecting the engine.
Operating a car with a severely dirty oil filter, air filter or improperly functioning PCV valve can also sometimes result in engine oil blow-by, oil loss and blue exhaust smoke. Periodically checking the engine oil level with the oil dip stick will indicate if there is excessive oil consumption. Higher viscosity engine oil can sometimes temporarily reduce the amount of blow-by; however, this is not generally recommended. Excessive blue exhaust smoke indicates a possible internal engine oil leak that should be inspected by an ASE certified mechanic.
