HI,

I have just brought a 2003 V8 S Cayenne. Its burning alot of oil. It creates ALOT of smoke :mad: .There is also a ticking noise when it warms up. I have taken to AMG and they have put new spark and coil packs. They have told me the compression for the pistons is 110psi on all of them. It pulls as it should do performance is as it should be. It is just the smoke i am concerned about. Can anybody help with things to test or to try as a priority?HELP

Check the valve seals for oil leaks. This will be a costly repair, but i suggest having the upper part of the engine rebuilt at the same time.

You could have a scored cylinder. Which will let oil into the combustion chamber thus causing your smoke. The only way to check for this with out tearing your motor apart is get a borescope and look through the spark plug holes.
