Sorry to bring an old thread up but the issue the OP was having is exactly the same issue as my car.
I'm wondering if anyone has any answers to this.
Few extra points - the car starts and drives perfectly fine until it gets to normal temperature, when the car is at normal temperature there is no power after 2000rpm, and when the accelerator is fully down the car stutters and coughs black smoke out.
Hope someone can point me in the right direction as wiring looms aren't covered by my warranty.
I'm not aware of any recalls notices regarding this but I would be grateful if someone could check please.
Did you read post 9?
...and when you say your car exhibits exactly same fault as OP, smoking and burning! Yet you say it still drives fine until up to normal operating temperature. Are you sure you have posted in the right thread?
You could try unplugging the MAF/MAP(?) on the airt intake and see if this makes any difference.
I didn't fully read post #9 but now I understand, thank you for the pointer.
The wiring is exactly the same as the photos but I couldn't see any smoking burning.
Will replace the loom and see if the fault reoccurs
Have you not got any warning lights, when was the fuel filter and air filter last changed, you can take the air filter out and look at it, if it looks dirty change it. and have you plugged in a code reader to see if there are any faults stored. when its cold does it rev through the range without the symptoms you have when at temperature ?
@dazj, I'm sorry but I must be thick, please explain how your fault is "exactly the same" as the original OP. If it is the word "smoke" then maybe you missed that the original OP smoke was coming from a glow plug connection and yours is from the exhaust!? Other than the word "smoke", and the "no fault lights" I fail to see how your issue has anything to do with this post.
I don't have any warning lights on my dash and occasionally if I boot it I might get a little smoke out the exhaust, I would say you have more in common with my car than the original OP. Or are you suggesting that maybe I should think about changing my loom as well? (Just kidding).
I think your best bet is to start a thread of your own, clearly stating the symptoms you actually have. You will probably get better answers.
PS: I wasn't joking about disconnecting the MAF/MAP (not sure which you have), and report back any difference it makes, but please start a new post.
Just another thought, is your turbo OK? No strange whooshing noises or the anything else that at some point in the not to distant past has made you think "hmm, that's not the usual noise I get when I drive like this"
