Default 207 1.6vti water mixed with oil

I have a 207 1.6 vti non turbo which seems to be mixing water into the oil.
Do these engines have an oil cooler? I cant seem to see one anywhere. Want to eliminate that first before i get a compression test done.

Hi there! I have the same engine in my 2008 207SW and no, there is no oil cooler.

Water in the oil can look a bit like mayonnaise in the oil filler cap. If there wasn't too much of it and we were in the depths of winter then you can just put this down to short journeys.

At the height of summer however the same symptom usually means only one thing...

Rocker cover off, blew into the water bottle and heard bubbling. Upon closer inspection there is a core plug down around the timing chain which has begun leaking. Looks like it will be fun to try fix

Please keep us posted about what you find. Don't know about the core plug you describe so I'd be fascinated to know more!

Here are a few pictures. I have circled the core plug for anyone wondering where it is in the future.

Big thanks L.J!

Yip, that does look like a lot of fun to fix but hopefully less misery than a head gasket

Regards,
Ivor
