Hi all,

 

Just wondering if there was anybody out there who could shed some light on the problems my dads having with his passat

 

The cars a 51 plate and has never been any trouble till about three weeks ago,when he started to notice clouds of BLACK smoke when pottering around slow country roads. Did`nt think to much about at the time.

 

He has said that he has olso noticed slight spots of oil under the bonnet down one side of the engine,(did`nt say which side),but never enough to create any drips on the garage floor.

When he has started the car, he has noticed a different smell,not a burning smell,but as he described it "you just notice a different smell like you do when you over fill the wiper wash bottle"??

 

But finally yesterday when comeing back from Blackpool, all power went. The car will not got faster than 75mph and generally feels very lumpy,but there is no black smoke what so ever. When stationary the car has no problem reving at all.

Took it to a local garage, but they have no idear, what they did say though is that the Turbo`s working fine.(Don`t know what they did to come to that conclusion)

 

So, any advise would be greatly appreciated,

thanks

jack

black smoke, is a sign of overfueling, although if its just a puff of black smoke

under throttle, then that just a small build up of soot. infact modern diesels do tend

to need an occasional clear out.

as for your other problems, there are so many possible causes that i surgest

you try one of the VAG forums.

these boys know their cars well.
