Hi folks. Where is the 'anything goes' thread so I can tell few jokes in return for help and advice??? Problem is when I cold start my 1.7 td, there is excessive white smoke. This disappears after 30 secs, but 70% of the time, there is excessive black smoke when I accellerate hard. Seems to run fine despite this.???? Someone suggested pump timing, faulty injector and 'dis-engage ecu thing. PS--new to diesels ans appreciate anything I can learn. Thanks!
