  1. i drove it as if i;d stolen it for about 5 miles, sure enough curled out smoke for first couple then seemed alot better. i decided today to have a go at bypassing egr filters all removed revealed multi plug with lots of wires from top part, no vacuum pipe ??? all back together, abandoned. will tackle valve clean out when more time to spare. thanks for all the help n tips so far
  2. you make it sound simple.. is it easy to blank it off to save future hassle ? What about mot emissions ???
  3. would EGR valve cause the hickuping feeling ?
  4. i would not describe it as white, greyish... also the fact its bad on fuel mpg
  5. hi I recently purchased a fiesta 1.4 tdci 2006 64000 miles. day after getting it home, noticed rather a lot of smoke from exhaust and not running smooth. Changed fuel and air filters helped with smoke problem. on cruising, engine feels as if got hickups, a bit more throttle and it runs smooth untill cruising again. done a 150 mile run, returned 42 mpg ?? any help or ideas welcome PLEASE
