winx Posted February 6, 2008 Share Posted February 6, 2008 I am really struggling with reducing the smoke from my 200tdi disco. I havent driven it at night for months and only noticed it a couple of nights ago after having to take it to work. I have read the instructions given Here but it doesn't seem to be helping. My disco has a brunel replacement intercooler and the boost turned up to 1bar.A friend 'turned it up' a few months ago but can't remember how much he moved things and is 300 miles away so can't have a look! My problem is a grey haze under acceleration at night, you can't see it during the day but cars behind me pick it up in their headlights. It happens under acceleration, using about 1/2 bar of boost so medium acceleration. The only way to stop the smoke is to harldy use the throttle and accelerate very slowly. I have tried turning the diaphragm anti-clockwise (started a little and ended up 180 degrees!) but it has not made any real difference to smoke or performance. Next I tried turning the power screw on the back of the pump ant clockwise, whilst this reduced power at higher boost levels the haze did not go. Can anyone tell me where I have gone wrong and is there a way to sort it? Many thanks for your help, starting to get very annoyed with it!
