Fuel in oil is more than likley the piston rings, have you any smoke out of the car?

Is yours a Phase 1 or Phase 2 Zetec S?

so the black means overfuelling, have you fitted an aftermarket chip? either way i would start looking for a new engine.

for a 1.7 conversion it works out around 800qid.

whats the mileage on the engine, beig a phase1, theyre known for notbein very reliable after 80ish K. i had a ZS a while back and had the same problem, the big ends went and it was a new engine jobbie. i got a ph2 engine with 35k on the clock fully fitted for £1000 all in at Olympic Autos in New Ferry. Great service and had the car back within 4 days, nd the engine and all parts came with a years gaurantee.

Worth giving them a call. 0151 644 1066
