Hi fairly new to this site and only had my GT for a few months.
I have a 04 1.9jtd GT.
Purchased from a mate who has had it since it was 3 months old.
Now at 73k and other than normal routine service items the only thing to go wrong was a drivers heated front seat. - who said they are unreliable.
I'm looking to get a few items done in the very near future.
Suspention need looking at - posible upper wishbones
Clutch - strange slight slip only under hard acceleration in 5th or 6th
Service required in 3k
My real issue is a strong strange smell - like burnt fumes/diesel - more apparent when vehicle is warm and sat in traffic. - it gets into the cabin.
Performance is fine, economy 42-45 short trips, only slight burst of exhaust smoke under hard exceleration.
EGR valve removed cleaned and tested - all working fine.
No oil use in last 3 months.
I can see some feedback on this site but nothing conclusive?
The car is fantastic and never fails to put a smile on my face everytime i drive it.
Any advise on what the problem might be and any advise on where is best to take it.
is it linked to a slipping clutch??
Thanks in advance - Adrian.
