20v 156jtd Sportwagon Still got the grey smoke ?

Hi guys,
Have posted before on this issue before but have not really had any concrete feedback, now I have to sell the car and would like this dealt with first for its new owner.

Have cloud of grey smoke when accelerating harder than normal, drop a gear overtake etc, very embarrassing leaving the guy in a cloud of smoke.

I am trying not to labour the engine, trying to hold 2k revs and not wander around in 6th at 30 mph ! Otherwise engine is running fine, fuel reading on the computer is low, not checked manually but think it's reading low.

Where do I take it to get it checked out and resolved ? I am in Telford, 30 miles NW of b'ham and would be willing to travel a sensible distance to see anyone who feels they may have the right equipment to diagnose, do I need a diesel or alfa specialist ?

Any information would be welcome

Thanks Steve

I'd say you did get concrete feedback in terms of what to expect from an internet forum diagnosis, what do you expect from remote diagnosis? Some form of miracle fix

Did you actually fit the EGR blanking plate as discussed in the previous thread

Have you checked the inter-cooler pipes for splits

Have you checked the convoluted rubber pipe between airbox and turbo for splits
