    A4 new engine..not running properly

    Just put a replacement engine in my a4 tdi. Car is now struggling to start. Once it's started it ticks over fine. But when driven its lost all power, seems to be miss firing and plenty of smoke from the rear? Smells strongly of fuel. Any ideas what's going on?
