seems to be a common occurance with these!!
right, last week, after 1 day of owning her, i noticed a blue smoke coming from the back when i was changing gears in he lower range. as i had just bought it from a garage i have a years waranty and i got on the phone to them as soon as i could.
later that night, the engine management light came on and wouldnt go out. i wasnt in limp mode as i could get plenty of revs but took it slow until i got home. got it into garage and they informed me that it required a new emissions sensor (?!) - this gets replaced and when i call up to ask if its ready, he tells me that it never cured the problem and is now saying that some sort of air mass sensor.
just picked the car up and runs a treat! well chuffed!! until about 10 miles from home, going up hill in 5th i notice the puff of smoke back again and sure enough, the dreaded engine management light comes back on!!
theres no real trend to when it smokes, its totally random as i could either be accelerating gently or de-acceleration, or cruising along at 30.
someone suggested the head gastket but im not too sure if my warranty covers this - if not, how much for a new one and how hard to replace?
i had intended to get it to wallace performance for the rollers but reckon they could hook it up to see if somethings running too rich?
thanks for taking time to read all that but i need reasurance that its not ****ed
