    Default Gonna Get This Smokin Sorted! Hoping For Mpg To Rise And Noise To Fall?

    Hi guys and gals! I'm a bit of a drifter on here, but I thought I'd contribute a little rgarding what I believe is a bugbear of many a DTi owner.. the smoking startup!

    Right. My 2.0DTi always starts, but the first start of the day is accompanied by a slight juddering and a billow of black smoke. Can't recall the last cold snap, but I'm 99.9% certain there were no excessive difficulties in starting then.

    So, from what I have gleaned from various sources of info that should put glowplug replacement well down the line as a possible culprit (though may replace these anyway), as this smoke occurs whatever the weather

    To the crux of the matter: Next week I'm gonna give her a full service, plus change out the vx suspension for b4s and eibachs.. maybe new drop links, bushes etc.

    Whilst I'm at it I'll check (hopefully replace) the leak off pipes, injector seals and check the fuel filter and any visible lines for splits.... has anyone on here who has greater knowledge than me tell me if these few things will remedy the situation, or if I should check for anything else? I really don't want to start thinking about the pump, though!

    I have defo noticed a slight drop in mpg recently and I believe an increase in noise, and am hoping if I fix the smoking problem these will be remedied also.. (though the fact that it has been 18k miles since oil change might not help, either!)

    Cheers guys!

    Nick :-)
