Sorry to trouble you kind folks again, but three times over the last two weeks, i have started my car with no problem, and then pulled off my drive and tried to accelerate down the road. But it has no pull at all, and sounds like its running on three cylinders. Tonight it happened, and i noticed there was, what i think was exhaust fumes coming from under the car, and visible in the headlights. Wether this was the wind blowing it to the front of the car or not i dont know. But each time this has happened i turn off the motor, and immediatley start it up again and all is well, and i drive off as normal. I realy need to find out what it is as my three month warranty runs out in march, and if its a major then they can fix it. Once again i,m sorry to be a pain, but this is my first diesel.
Hope one of you helpful folk can point me in the right direction

Regards Shaddow

Sounds like good advise Will phone them tomorrow and see what they say. They said when i enquired about my leaking clutch master valve, that it was only covered for main components though. But will try. Thanx for reply.
