Question about 2005 Renault 181
Do you leave an oil patch when you park? if not then you wil notice when you put your foot down that a noticable cloud of smoke is expelled from the exhaust. this indicates that one or more of your oil seals is going/gone. the more you drive it the worse it gets im afraid. best test is to listen to the engine whilst running it and see if there are any tapping noises or knocking noises as this is a newish car and shouldnt have many probs?

Tips for a great answer:
White smoke: White smoke is caused by water and or antifreeze entering the cylinder, and the engine trying to burn it with the fuel. If white smoke is present, check to see if the proper amount of antifreeze is inside the radiator and the overflow bottle. Also check to see if antifreeze has contaminated the engine oil. You can look at the engine oil dipstick, or look at the under side of the engine oil filler cap. If the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, it will have the appearance of a chocolate milkshake. Do not start the engine if the oil is contaminated with antifreeze, as serious internal engine damage can result.
It is also possible to be a engine problem you should immediate visit a car service.
