Hi I have a vauxhaull corsa 1.7 dti corsa the water tank looks like it has black oil in it and I have to keep topping up the water can anyone help?

Sounds like it has been overheated and the head gasket has let go. Replace the head gasket and have the head skimmed.

Engine dies on me then starts up again vaxhall vectra 2.2 dti estate

Not familiar with the vehicle however, if the "d" in "dti" stands for diesel, id check the large fuel filter; usually under the hood (bonnet). Possibly only needs the air bled out -especially if the filter has been changed recently.

1.9 dti opel pick up wont start

It could be an Immobilizer fault, if the spanner /car light comes on.
If you have a spare key, try it
A Flashing spanner light normally means immobiliser fault hence the non-start. The spanner light left might just be an indication that it has stored the "wrong transponder" code.
Opel will have to clear this but you might need a CIM as well that is the bit that reads the key to allow it to start.
Try the spare key if you have one

On 1.7 DTi models, a defective solenoid in the pump can cause failure of the ECU due to excessive current draw causing components to burn out. but this *should* cause other fault codes to appear.

87 conquest blowing black somke and loss of power

It's running too rich, most likely the choke mechanisms aren't coming off when the engine is warm.

I occasionally see light blue somke from the exhaust of 2006 2.0 Kia Sportage vgt. Am worried and need help to solve it

if its just at start up its no bid deal- jjust a little oil running down the valves at shut down-new valve stem seals would stop it but thats not going to hurt anything -if its all the time after it warms up- then you've got a problem-at least have to do a piston ring job-denny

Smokie when left engine running

If you're seeing blue smoke it's from oil burning and indicates bad valve guide seals. At idle the engine vacuum is high and sucks oil through the valve guides. If it's white smoke it's from burning coolant in the cylinders indicating a cracked head or leaking head gasket.

Why it somke only when it get hot and at idle lightbule somke when it get hot and when it idle

Oil rings on the pistons are bad. This is a engine rebuild or replace you can still drive it, just keep check on the oil level

I have a 1997 chevy lumina that just fouled the #4 spark plug and runs very rough, it also blows bluish somke from the exhaust, would any one know if this is a intake manifold gasket or head gasket...

sounds more like a carbon issue on the piston rings. i would run an oil cleaner such as BG #109, i have seen excellent results with this. worth a try for the price ( about $20 for a can).

Black smoke coming from exhaust but car is running, have changed filters but no change.the car is renault megan dti 02

Black smoke usually means a rich mixture. For some reason the car is getting too much fuel. If the check engine light is on then take it to a shop with a code reader. They can tell you what sensor needs replacing. These newer cars are usually totally computer controled so if a sensor goes bad they will adjust the mixture incorrectly.
