    just joined..where do i start...smoke. cdti 54

    Hi there,

    i have a 54 plate astra van and it has a light on the dash fault light i guess, looks like a transmission.

    ok where to start my vans pump pulley came lose or slipped garage fixed it drove fine but top end rattled after it was fixed so they put new lifters in it and still the rattle and they said i could be a bent valve. drove fine tho just noisey...

    then after driving it all day the revs picked up to max and smoked like crazy been told its the turbo?? also has the light on.

    so now im going to have a go myself as i have rebuilt my golf gti engine and messed around with a few cars in the past ie clutches gearboxs etc so im feeling confident

    do you think i should buy one of these fault testing things ? i have seen a few on ebay for sale...

    advse on all please

    Ben

    get the error codes up pal..... do the pedal test
    1. put one foot on on brake, one foot on accelerator
    2. put key in ignition and turn twice!! (till dash lights come on NOT engine turnover)
    3. make note of error codes displayed in tacho display e.g ECN 000990

    post them here and some body will be able to help you out. hope this works for you
