Smoking Heavily under acceleration
hi all, only just joined and have done a search briefly but no really sure if the threads apply..
anyhow. I have a 20V JTD 156 seems to run fine cruising >70mph but a couple of things happen if i either accelerate hard or go above 70mph
There is a rather large plume of smoke left behind the car...it accelerates well (I think...I've only owned it a few days) but sometimes the engine almost seems as if it's slightly unbalanced now i think the "unbalanced" feeling kinda seems like a driveshaft but can't be 100% on that and will investigate further when i can get it on a ramp.
but the smoke is bothering me, I've read countless threads all over the net saying about a blocked EGR's can 'cause this but also goes on to mention poor performance and economy, well to date it seems nippy enough and today on £30 of fuel its managed around 320miles and still not hit reserve yet.
I'm sorry if this has been covered before..
