Hi, I have a 1998 1.3 Suzuki swift that has a violent wobble at the front end. its not tires, balance or bearings as this was all done in its mot last week. cant seem to see any obvious problems with parts...

the mot dont prove anything much>?
you do know that a real shop , not mot goofs.
a real ASE shop would attempt a in car tire balance
and it would either fail, or they would see the obvious , pronto.
for readers, MOT is "SMOG TEST STATION" in English.
Site side, they are NOT technicians At all, they just do their simple tests and give you thumps up or down.

what can it be, (first end this assumptions deal, keep a 100% open mind, only the truth will come out)
1: bad balance or bad shocks, (dampeners)
a tire that is just tiny bet out of balance will be 10x magnefied
with bad shocks, since 1920 to now. no changes....

2: ; bad wheel bearings.
3: bad supspension parts. lose, bent, bushings bad etc.
try a suspension shop, ask for them to check the front end parts.
5: bad drive. CV joints, or axles bent or bad.
again any real ASE shop can find this easy. Not the MOT s

What caused white smoke from exhaust?

Generally, white smoke is engine coolant burning. If it only happened for a few seconds, you may have leaked some on the exhaust pipes.
I would check the engine oil and coolant levels with the engine cold, and then look for coolant leaks.

Black smoke from exhaust hard shifting

Black smoke from you're exhaust may mean that you're truck is burning oil. The hard shifting maybe do to something else. I recommend checking you tranny fluids! The color of the fluid should be pink. If you're fluid's look ok and it's still shifting you can reset the ECU to do this unplug the battery completely then touch the negative of the battery to the positive terminal this will drain any & all power from the ECU resetting it. Start up the engine let it idle for a minute or two then drive as smooth as you can for next few mile the computer will relearn the proper shifting spot's and you OBD1 will also relearn the beast running setting's. But if the black smoke if coming from somewhere else then I recommend going to a shop to get it checked!

I ave a 994 pontiac, bonnieville. about a week

there is probably a dead spot in the fuel pump,and when it is hot and you shut off the car it will not run.Next time the car does not start,bang on the gas tank with a piece of wood or spray some starter fuel in the throttle body. if it starts,it is a fuel problem.
use a spark tester to see if there is spark as well.ignition modules and coil packs are common on those cars,as well as the EGR valve getting stuck.that will cause the car to idle ok but die out as soon as 2500 rpm is reached.

Failed mot on emissions slightly too high have changed the sparke plugs and air filter and added red x to the fuel now seems worse exhaust now smoking when at idle clears when driving is this the red x if...

It will smoke because of the red x, dontr know how long it will take to clear. But before going for an mot, you should take the car on the motorway or such like and give it a good blast/clean out. Town and short trip driving is not good for the car, it can clogg up the exhaust, and also if you take the car for test and the engine is relatively cold then the emmissions will be bad, As i said, give a good blast down the road to clear it out, That should work.

Fiat Stilo 1.9JTD power loss after 30k miles Sometimes (frequently!), pressing accelerator has no effect. Into neutral, press again & after short pause & burst of black smoke, off we go until the...

Its the EGR valve. Had exactly the same problems on my old 1.9 JTD.

You can take it off and remove all the carbon crud thats built up inside but the problem WILL return unfortunately. Its a mechanical failure so no error codes will be shown for this fault. You can also block them off which will return all of your power but also possibly make it an MOT failure due to excess soot coming from the exhaust.

Check that the car starts and run smoothly. If the car is not driving it should be sold for spares or repair for a low price.
Check mileage, engines over 120000 tend to have serious problems if not serviced regularly.
Possible reasons for no oil, either oil had been emptied by someone, or there is a problem, if owner cannot give an explanation and the car has very low oil level there can be a leak or a problem with the engine.
Check that gears and brakes are ok, and that there is no white smoke coming out from exhaust, white smoke means head gasket gone.
check also that the engine is relatively clean, you do not want to buy a car that is leaking oil all over the engine.
The MOT paper wrong model can be normal, often DVLA has wrong car data, check the car history and papers, and eventually phone DVLA to get details confirmed.
In any case I wouldn't buy a car with no or very low oil level unless oil had been purposely emptied, in the best case this mean a leak, or that the oil had not been checked for ages.
Good luck
