    Diesel Question

    i know diesels are sposed to be like it in a sense

    when i pull out of a junction/roundabout i look in my rear view mirror and theres a cloud of black smoke , just seems a little more than normal

    has your car been remmaped? mine is a heavy smoker because of the remap and also when car is low on fuel its smokes loads and when its warm outside. this morning i was flooring it to drop my bro off to work cuz his dam occy didnt start even though he has had a new battery 3 months ago and never left any electrics on. the above problems could cause more smoke then useual thats diesels for you! or your maf might be on its way out.

    i replaced mine from euro carparts they do a part-ex scheme i payed 85 for mine once i gave my old one back they had refunded me back 30. get the bosch one. mine got knackerd at 105k miles. also put some diesel red-ex next time you go on motorway should clear any crap out. acutally get forte stuff better then red-ex. let me know how u get on. let me know how you get one.

    yeah luckly my mechanic spotted the problem when my car went in to get lowered. had a new maf replaced 3 days before my remap at jabba. i had powerloss problems due to a faulty temp sensor replaced that and also put in forte injector cleaner went for a drive from leicester to harrow london no it seems to be find apart from when my fuel is low. do u have any powerloss problems?

    i couldnt tell u about powerloss cos i got it "like that" only had it a week !

    it does seem a bit slugish but it could be the fact its a diesel, ive come from driving a 180 bhp nat asp ford rs , and a cosworth too , down to a diesel etc

    gone the sensible route so , i spose i should get that vag stuff on it up to me laptop and see what faults it returns i guess
