GT jtd 2004 misfire at low revs
after suffering the issue detailed below today other symptoms developed, after running the car at revs just above the point where the car appears to stop "missing" a noise appears momentarily this i can only describe as being a ratcheting noise which sounds as if its coming from the right hand side, the car drops its power and a cloud of blue/gray smoke expells from the tailpipe, this sequence lasts only a couple of seconds, its almost as if the timing is slipping somehow.....any thoughts
hi a few weeks ago my Gt developed a misfire, when starting it would run fine but a little lumpy on idle, misfire would start from 1200 to 2000 revs then it cleared, this carried on for around a week until it cleared altogether,( i blamed dubious supermarket fuel) but after filling with only quality fuel from the local BP station this fault has come back but is in fact now a little worse so fuel is kinda ruled out, i blanked off egr valve to eliminate, disconnected MAF to eliminate but fault is still there, anyone have any thoughts on possible causes...sensors? etc...its a bit embarassing to drive around town now !!! lol
