    Default Please can somebody help me CDTI

    My car is literally turning into a money pit. Last week the battery light came on & alternator died. AA took me home & a guy came out to fit an alternator. He broke it putting it in, in turn he blew the fusebox & a water tank underneath.

    It is currently in the garage & is mis-firing and running on 3 cylinders. Loads of black smoke & noisy. Mechanic is stumped. He took 3rd injector plug off & it did not make any difference, unlike the others. So he replaced the injector but still no better.

    Please please please can someone help me I am going to go insane with this & I cannot afford any more repairs.

    Gallon of fuel and a match should sort all your probs. Sorry can't be of any more help. It seems like one thing after another with your motor.

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!
