trouble starting, and warm weather weirdness
I've had very long running power loss problems on my 2.4jtd, pretty much everything has been replaced or tested at some point (see my previous posts) and now has 2 garages stumped...
However just recently since the weather has got warmer 2 weird things have started to happen.
first the power loss is not as bad as it used to be, still drops off when put under load, but general driving is defiantly better (tho far from right).
however, its really struggling to start now all the time (only did it occasionally before) the engine will normally turn over for a good 5-6 seconds, splutter a few times then fire up properly, all be it with a HUGE cloud of smoke. it always starts eventually, and very occasionally it will start first time no problem.
had always thought my starting problems and power loss were related. only suggestion I've ever been given is an iffy injector(s) that may be leaking slightly, but that's never added up to me as runs very smoothly once started (and not under load)
