FridgeFreezer Posted September 18, 2006 Share Posted September 18, 2006 Yes, just as I decide to spend out on new tyres & suspension & bushes for the RRC it decides it's going to play up in the engine department Basically it's giving a fairly significant and prolonged cloud of blue smoke on startup from cold, and seems a bit down on power esp. noticable when towing. I think the two could well be unrelated as the engine is an unknown quantity but looks like someone has done some work as the block & heads are different colours to each other. It's not blowing out of the oil filler and the temp gauge is normal, in fact usually quite cool unless it's working hard. It's never liked idling properly but I put that down to carp ignition system and Lucas EFi more than anyting I'm suspecting valve stem oil seals - am I on the right track, and if so how critical is it to get done / how hard to do? Before any smart-arse diesel owner says "fit a TDi", when I searched for "smoke on startup" I got 20 pages of posts about rough running TDi's Anyone still determined to mention diesel will be dressed as a hob-nob and thrown to Jez Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
