Misfire and Running Rough
Would really appreciate any help or ideas with this!
'04 156 JTD M-Jet 1.9 (mapped in August '12)
About a month ago, it developed a nasty misfire, as soon as the turbo kicks in, mostly and worst in 3rd gear. It really jolts me forward when I'm not expecting it and chucks out quite a bit of smoke.
Trying to figure out the misfire issue, I changed the Upper Turbo Hose which I noticed had a hole in it, I was really hopeful this'd solve it! But no...
I had already planned in a timing belt change so a new kit was fitted, I'm told the last time it was changed it was 'marked' instead of 'pinned' (the mechanic could see the marks). I'm guessing this is probably the cause of the rough running of the engine, but I'm no mechanic! But surely it should run better if everything was lined up properly this time? :-S
