Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf
Just had new cat, car done 117000,17000in the last 15mth, using alot of petrol, blowing black smoke, and not tickin over properly. sometimes car will be fine but then same problems reaccur?puzzled had it in garage loads since getting it, had it 16mth, had new lamber sensor, cam shaft sensor and seal and new catalytic converter, would appriciate any help, thanks
If it just smokes when it idles, i'd be inclined to suggest it's the oil seals on the turbo... Leave it 10 minutes, see if the smoke starts, give the accelerator lots of gas to see if the smoke stops... If it does, then it's the turbo oil seals....
