Thinking of buying a 159 2.4 JTDm but...!
Went to see one today which seemed generally ok but when I got to it it had already been run and was still quite warm. When I started it up it was a little rough, maybe on 4(??), but only for a few seconds then cleaned out but there must have been a far bit of smoke from the exhausts which I hadn't noticed at first and only realised once I was out and walking round the car so cant be sure what colour it was, smelt more of diesel than oil though. On the road the car drove fine, couldn't detect any smoke from the rear when I booted it and was smooth and responsive. Any suggestions what might be at fault??? Should I steer clear? Cheers
