    Default somethings wrong!

    right guys i have a good one for you.
    firstly when i turn the engine on from cold the spanner light comes on and stays on for about 3-4 minutes before going out,whilst driving along if you slightly come off the accelerator and go back on the engine seems to shudder,it seems to have a loss in power and using slightly more fuel than it usually does,and im getting some smoke in higher gears especially on inclines.
    the fuel filter was changed yesterday(thanks kevwh)and the only other thing done to the car is the air box mod which was done about 10 days ago.
    i know something isn`t quiet right with it so if anyone has any ideas please let me know before i take it to the stealers and get fleeced.

    I think you have a combination of issues.

    Glow Plugs for the Engine light & the fact that it does it from cold & stays illuminated for a period of time.

    Faulty Thermostat (Quite common) for the Rise & Fall temps.

    The Shudder could be the Egr, probably best to get the other items sorted first & then try to diagnose the one that is left ..
