Re: heavy smoke from air breather and surrounding...
When was last time PVC valve was changed?
and is there oil in the air filter or in the throttle body?
and if there is this is maybe a sign the blow by on the oil rings is getting weak before you go crazy go to napa or auto zone and get Lucas oil treatment and try putting a quart of this in instead of a quart of oil at the next oil change and this may help you out

Hi there: Black smoke
is caused by excess fuel that has entered the cylinder area and cannot
be burned completely. Another term for excess fuel is "running
rich." Poor fuel mileage is also a common complaint when black
smoke comes out of the tailpipe. Black smoke out the tailpipe is the
least cause for alarm. Excess fuel will usually effect engine
performance, reduce fuel economy, and produce a fuel odor.
How did the fuel get into the cylinder in
the first place? Some of the causes of excess fuel are a carburetor that
is out of adjustment, a faulty fuel pump, a leaky fuel injector, or a
faulty engine computer or computer sensor. If black smoke is present,
check the engine oil as in the white smoke example to make sure excess
fuel has not contaminated it. Do not start the engine if a heavy, raw
fuel smell can be detected in the engine oil. Call your mechanic and
advise him of what you have found.
Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important
and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some
testimonial comment about this answer.
from the VW manual........"expect to use about 1 litre for every 500 km."the oil level should be checked every week".........some cars have a breather on the side of the block that needs cleaning every year.(looks like a metal canister about 2.1/2" tall by 4"wide with a hose to the inlet manifold/air cleaner).
Either oil is dripping on ur exhaust pipe and u smell it burning!
Ur blowback oil/gas is the one ur smelling at, usually on top of ur engine valve cover there is a breather outlet connected with hose and goes thru the air claner housing!
The hose might have cracks or been disconnected, check on that!
Hope that might help you!
what viscosity oil did you use???
blue smoke indicates oil burn,and if valve guides, would smoke on deceleration and if rings or block breather, would smoke on acceleration,first try block breather,wash out in petrol,then refit.the mot inspector will give you NO info on why......just charge you a fortune for doing something that may not need doing!!!
invest in a workshop manual and save yourself a fortune...
You likely have an oil leak that is running onto something hot. When the car is stopped, the smoke and smell comes out from under the hood and gets drawn inside the car through the air intake just in front of the windshield.
