Airflow Massmeter replaced, but Monitor control fault back on again!
Last week I had severe power loss in my 2005 147 JTD M-jet, resulting in black smoke on attempting acceleration! A 'diesel doctor' came out in the Stafford area(vey helpful & reasonably priced) & cleared the 'airflow sensor fault' on the ECU - meanwhile replacing the Airflow mass meter. The car now starts but was still kicking out black smoke on acceleration - car was accelerating with slight hesitancy. The Monitor control message is back on with the amber Engine light. I started the car up this morning & again the message/slight hesitancy in acceleration. I have since taken the car on the motorway to obtain more speed/acceleration & she seems to be okay now - with no obvious black smoke!
Is it possible their was still a lot of old fuel deposits from driving home from Oldham to Stafford while faulty? & that although the airflow mass meter was replaced/Computer reset could still cause slightly rough running yesterday & cause the monitor fault to come back on?
