    Default Juddering / Blue Smoke

    Hi,

    The car had 2 glow plugs failed which have been replaced, I still get this juddering on idle and at low rev's, I've not lost any power as the performance is still there, whilst it's juddering I do notice blue smoke from the exhaust and also discovered blue smoke upon heavy acceleration....I've had the injectors tested by my local garage by a leak off test, all four filled the pots up about the same....I'm still suspecting that this is likely a injector problem as the juddering feels like a misfire....if anybody can shed some light on this issue I'd be very grateful.....Thanks

    Blue smoke means the engine is running on oil and as there is juddering inolved sounds like the turbo is a possibility, allthough turbo's don't always cause a reduction in power (in operating range) when goin faulty. I have assumed however you have had the usual culprits ruled out - cylinder head/valve stems etc.

    Whatever the fault get it sorted asap as deisels can run on their own oil meaning you can't switch them off.
