When starting from cold,


Recommended Posts

When the old Hippo has been stood for a while and engine cold, then started, just revving slowly then around 2,000rpm the engine runs really lumpy and kicks out grey smoke for as long as I keep the accelerator steady. Then after driving away seems ok, though sure that always around 2,000rpm engine seems to lose a little power.

Been into the dealers this week, no problems found on test book, they said it maybe contaminated fuel, so have added some additive to diesel.

When starting from warm, seems to be not as noticeable, any ideas anyone? Its not long since I had one new injector, the other three have been refurbished, I thought it may be an injector problem, though apparentley not.

All The Best :)
