Vw caddy sdi, when hot has a lumpy idle seems to shake the van, and leaves quite a bit of smoke,( blue tinted) at the traffic lights, doesnt seem to be using any oil over the last 600mile and seems to


The BST engine in your Caddy is prone to a couple of design flaws that can cause the trouble you are experiencing. Certainly, it could be an injector but could also be down to timing or the camshaft sensor. If you haven't had the timing belt changed, it may have stretched a tiny bit and that's enough to cause the problems you have with lumpy idle. Timing is adjusted on the camshaft pulley - but tiny adjustments can make a big difference. The EGR valves are also prone to sticking causing black smoke. Hope that helps a bit.

1.9 dci no power and bluey grey smoke is coming from the exhaust


There are indeed traces of oil coming out of the exhaust. Blue smoke is burning oil. Grey or white smoke is usually coolant/water going through the engine. This can be caused by leaking head gaskets, valve guides depending on the engine, excessive blow-by, etc. Large amounts of oil are not good; and water is even worse. I would look at getting the head gasket replaced. The loss of power is because neither oil or water likes to burn, and once your engine clears it out, it probably runs ok for the rest of the day. Then I'm guessing the next morning, it comes back. This is an urgent fix, because prolonged leakage can damage the engine block, head, or both.

Kangaroing kango


Does your kango have an EGR valve? I had a 2001 1.9DCi scenic and quite often the EGR valve would foul up with carbon and not allow it to shut. I simply removed it and cleaned it and it would go great for a few months until the same thing happened.

Renault megane diesel black smoke


This could be as simple as the EGR (exhaust gas recycling) valve stuck open. This valve is supposed to open at a specific time, recycling the exhaust gasses back through the engine. If they stick open, the engine is not getting the correct air mixture to burn the fuel efficently, causing black smoke and lack of power. Have the garage remove and blank off this valve. If it runs ok, then a new EGR is needed.

LACK OF POWER


Does it smoke? Could possibly be sticking EGR valve. Remove and clean, or blank off and try running without it. If it runs better, this is your problem.
