Hi

I have a 54 plate Freelander TD4 Auto.

Have towed with it 3 times but last weekend we towed with it, it started making a weird noise like air blowing, lost power going up slopes and it kicked out black smoke, it's doing the same without the van on the back.

Oh also an eggy smell, we are assuming the cat? Does this sound like normal faults for a cat that's breaking down?

Any other suggestions please.

Thanks.

Top intercooler hoses.....one on the left and one on the right top of engine.....look for oily residue around them and im sure you will find a split.

Normaly on the bottom edge....get your hands dirty and have a feel.
