156 JTD 16V

Attention smokers

Hi guys

My 156 1,9 16V jtd is giving me a hassle.

When i been driving for a while, maintaining the same speed. Its like diesel particules is building up i the exhaust. it starts to smoke noticeable and if i floor it, theres a big cloud of diesel smoke, after the cloud there is no smoke and it looks like its running ok but after 10 mins it starts again. Dynolicious says 17,3 sec 1/4 mile best was 15,2

it seems like unburned fuel and i was thinking of a faulty injector but it starts just fine.

- Not remapped (Well not yet)

- Turbos fine (unfortunately, excuse for a GTB)

- Pipes are fine (all replaced)

- No engine faults

Anyone!?!

Get your injectors checked. EGR is OK?

Im thinking the injectors too.

Havent checked EGR, but checked intake manifold for soot not long ago and it was okīish.

You could try getting it Terra cleaned ,do a search, getting mine done thurs costs about £85 it will burn off all the carbon in your engine it should clean your injectors as well.
May well solve your problem worth a go for a small outlay me thinks
