    I'm wondering if the engine is at that stage now where it runs into problems... It has 70K on the clock. My last Smart car was drinking oil like no tomorrow and that was the time to change it.

    I'm not a mechanic so I can't fix this myself. It'll have to go to a garage asap, assuming I can now drive it there. I'm wondering if a local independent garage could sort it? I certainly won't do...
