Poor Acceleration water in fuel warning light
Hi all hope you can help me.
I have a 156 2.4 JTD 150bhp. I have had the old water in fuel filter warning light for a while now, only flashes for the briefest of seconds once and a while. As a result the car is just not what it should be. Not bad, but not as sharp. I have had a new maf installed.....new EGR value, but behold, still the same issue. The frustrating part is when I get the ECU memory reset once these items have been replaced it runs like a dream....until that light flashes, then next time I start it up same problem. Its like there is a delay in pushing the accelerator and getting some go. It needs a heavy foot to make it go. I know there is a difference as when its working ok, if a touch the accelerator it goes immediately, but when its not behaving there is a lag or delay before the engine wakes up I also get a bit of smoke under heavy acceleration once this problem occurs.
PLEASE anyone any ideas, I am begining to think there is no hope !
