Another problem arose this morning with my 1.6 8v...
On the way to pick my bro up for work i noticed the car was slightly hesitant... thought nothing of it, but when i picked him up & set off in 1st gear it was VERY kangaroo'ey & stopped revving at about 3500rpm, changed to 2nd & same again very jumpy, loss of power but revved further up to about 5000rpm... then 3rd was fine...
After that it was ok again
The above is a thread i posted last week regarding my car smoking white smoke.... Today the smoke was bad when the engine was cold BUT more or less cleared up once warm... Doesnt seem to pore out when i rev looks to me more like steam from the exhaust but im not a mechanic hence the questions lol... Water has gone down a very tiny bit since topping up tho (no more than a cm on tank)
The other thing to note is that it has been absolutly hooning it down all night & day - VERY wet & windy & cold... Could something of got a bit damp???
Just after a bit of reassurance really, dont need any big problems @ this time of the year!!!
