Hi everyone 🙂
So on first start on any day my 159 1.9 jtdm 2010 with 120k on the clock sometimes has to crank for several seconds, always has a fair bit of white smoke and sounds quite rough for about 10seconds. After that idle fluctuates slightly consistently but only about 30 to 50rpm.
Any ideas? I've had the following done in the 3 months I've owned it:
Intake manifold off and cleaned
Cam belt and water pump replaced
Auxiliary belt replaced
Swirl flaps removed/blanked
I removed throttle body and cleaned (not very dirty at all)
Fuel filter replaced (UFI)
low pressure fuel return pipe replaced (old one was leaking)
Map and MAF cleaned out, map was filthy. Car starts the same with MAF disconnected.
Previous owner had:
Removed DPF (tsk tsk)
Both clearly mapped out.
Glow plugs changed at 80k
No error codes on ECU (using Torque Pro)
Any ideas? It's no better than when I first got the car except on warmer days it's not as bad. The car runs better after the jobs I've done, but not the start up and idle.
I'm planning an oil change end of the week but that's mainly for the clattery diesel sound as I'm fairly sure the garage I bought it from either put the wrong oil in or just lied and didn't bother as it's black and only done 2000 miles since I bought it.
