Right, the latest on this...
On Monday I was driving down the A1 when all of a sudden I heard a huge 'whoosh' kind of noise, looked behind me and there was loads of black smoke. Great I thought, turbo pipe split, nursed it to a garage and sure enough that's what it was, bottom turbo hose split. Part of me was quite relieved as I thought at least I knew why it was smoking, and it would be sorted with a new pipe.
However, I have now got the new pipe, and the bloody thing is STILL smoking!! Getting rather annoyed now as it has now had upper turbo pipe repaired, lower turbo pipe replaced, EGR and throttle body removed and cleaned, and a fuel treatment in the tank! Is this smoke at the moment just likely to be whatever was in there when the pipe split (there was a LOT of smoke then, and I had to drive it about 20 miles to a garage I knew) and it will soon burn off, or am I looking at a leaking intercooler? Any advice would be great! If it is an intercooler, how much would that cost?
Also, anyone fancy buying a 156 1.9 JTD?? For condition, see this thread!!
