What sort of smoke? White? Check all the turbo hoses.
Try to find someone who can plug in and get the fault code. You can get a cheap Bluetooth ODB2 adapter and an app if you have a smart phone.

Sounds like EGR or MAF to me, you'd probably be better off in the 159/Brera/Spider forum.

All the best

OH MY god sorry. i tought i am in 159/brera forum... Any chance to move it over there?


About the new updates dpf filter was removed. It was emptied from inside. Aloooot less smoke. The guy cleaned everything EGR Maf Map... Now i still feel there is a lack of power until the car hits 2000rpm then i see power.so if i go in a hill i have to get back to 2gear then hit the third gear. Im going to get an EGR blank and delete... I wish it gets fixed :D
