Brake booster vacuum leak


Your brakes appear to be dragging i.e. brake pads still contacting the rotor. It could be air in your hydraulic braking system. Have the braking system flushed and bled.

2004 Chrysler Voyager, had an acrid burning smell and a lot of smoke when heater is turned on, also a rattling/squealing noise, all stops when heater turned off?


you more than likely have a sciezed air con compressor. most modern cars have climate control which uses air con even when demisting and when engaged the electric clutch tries to engage but the pump itself will not turn, clutch will get red hot and burn your belts

Are you saying you have smoke coming out of the tail pipe ? Or is something dripping onto the exhaust pipe and burning ?
If the smoke is coming out of the tail pipe, is it blue, white, or black ?

Lack of power and lots of smoke from exhaust


You've done a lot of work. How does your EGR valve look Its the 'space ship' gizmo under the air cleaner. Remove and decoke is a quick job and it may just cure the lot

I have a whisling sound coming from my 4 cyl nissan it sound like it's coming from under the exaust manifold or around the egr valve i know it's a vacuum leak but i can't pinpoint where its coming from


Remove the vacuum connection to the EGR valve and plug it with a golf tee or similar. If it stops whistling, remove the EGR valve and inspect for wear or seal damage (replace if bad). If you still have noise, suspect a leaking exhaust manifold gasket. Hope this helps!

I recently bought a second hand grand voyager and occaisionally when the car is started a little symbol on the dash comes on and stays on. when it stays on and i come to the end of my journey, the car...


It means that the pre heat is in operation.It is a system that burns diesel to create heat to warm up engine quicker so that warm air comes into car sooner.The smoke is the exhaust gasses from the system and normally the whistleing and smoke stops when engine reaches running temperature or on short journeys approx 1 minute after engine is turned off
During summer when no heat is required and air con is on cooling it should not light even when starting from cold

hope this helps

Costly fix


STAY AWAY FROM THIS CAR!!!! If there is a high piched whistle from under the bonnet and it is a turbo the said turbo is about to let loose. As for the other work niggley electrics are not un common on the passat all the other work seems wear and tear but these cars are not killed off easily it sound like it's a lemon Please dont buy it unless you are married to the owner of a bank.

Oily smoke/mist coming from under bonnet from large pipe feed


That is the R12 Refrigerant from the AC System. A Seal has Blown out of the AC Compressor. You should be ok driving to a Garage , Just keep the air off and watch it Close.

Smoke out of exhaust and loss of power


sounds like your turbo let loose. The smoke is the coolant that runs thru the intercooler which cools the turbo. I would say either remove the turbo from the system , or replace it.
which engine is in your car?
w/o B234R eng; (T25 turbo) [rare]
or
w/B234R eng (TD04 turbo) Garrett type? (tag72623 Garrett pt# 452083-15)

for a used Turbo you are looking at around $150 plus shipping. but you will need to know which turbo you have of course.

The intercooler is gonna run an additional $50 or so (Hollander part number 317-51291) plus shipping.

give me a zip and tell me which engine (or turbo) you have and I will be happy to get you hooked up with the salvage yard closest to you that has these parts.

1994 Volkswagen MK1 golf knocking noise


Very simple.... I had this problem and it drove me Crazy.... your gearbox engine mount is gone. When you look at it it will look fine but when under load it moves. creating the knocking noise..

Use a crowbar (Very carefully) to move the engine to check.
