156 2.0 TS, won't start
110K 1998 2.0 TS, was driving & it felt like it was lacking power, anyway only just bought it, was on empties, i filled it up & it took a lot of petrol so it running in fumes (reckon 65L), drove ok for 1 hour, parked for 45 mins, quick 3 min drive then it cut out as it started exhausting a lot of white smoke!
started up again then a clanking noise from the engine & it wouldn't rev up properly, lots more smoke, after starting again it wouldn't idle & cut out, done this once more & gave up.
& I towed her home where it sits now.
I've had suggestions of a) cat convertor b) head gasket c) dirt gone into the injectors from the empty tank.
can't get it to start now at all, although it almost starts.
any suggestions very welcome & I'll see if I have to tow it to a mechanic or what tomorrow/Sat.
does anyone have an diag software/manual?
