Ok last year i had the car serviced at a local garage as it was ruined basically. It had an engine light on and no power. After a new starter motor battery and a change of all fluids it was running ok, but still not as much power as it should have. Few months on and it seems to leak a lot of oil, the engine light is still on, after journeys smoke comes from the oil, whenever I go on the motorway it makes a whooshing sound when i accelerate, there is just no power whatsoever for a 1.6 and it can smell of burning oil at times. The car has done 145,000miles since 2006. Does anyone have an idea to what all this could add upto, wheather its something that needs replacing or the whole engine needs replacing.

Your engine is probably passed it due to lack of care the whooshing is probably a burst boost pipe and this is causing the lack of power and possibly the oil mess but It may well be leaking from the rocker cover too.

You have done well to get to 145k miles without turbo failure :)
