Customer Question

I have a 2008 Xtype 2.0 diesel which smokes on acceleration - particularly on egr opening after warmed up.
New egr valve fitted 7k ago -didn't really fix.Has just got worse again.
Car is 75k with all services done properly -now smokes almost embarassingly
Beginning to run unevenly on steady throttle -eg at 5omph.
Have put forte in every other tankful for sometime to no real avail.

When it first issues a lot after egr opens it is blackish.


Once warm and you accelarate hard it is greyish
