Hello

Ive got a Peugeot expert 1.9d 2004 van was running fine until the other morning started it up took off up the road and i felt it hold back then started white smoking missing farting about. Now when i start the van in the morning it runs spot on for the first minute the starts chugging missing and smoking bad almost to the point it cuts the van out. I would say the van is misfiring and the smoke is unburnt fuel any help would be appreciated

Things i have checked

1 Ive checked the timing pin holes everything lines up spot on

2 I've cracked each injector pipe when the engine is running fine 1st thing and they all make the engine note change when doing this

3 I've plugged it in to my little mac tools code reader and it is just say p100b performance

4I've unplug the air flow meter and egr valve made no difference

Hi mate,
I fitted a used engine a while ago and that started off the button 1st time then after about 1/2minutes the engine note changed and started missing.

Water was pressurising in expsnsion bottle only slightly so thought head gasket.so changed gasket even though it looked ok.
Still the same 1/2 minutes ...!
Ended up being the head had a crack in it....!

Fixed it in the end though without taking head off again.
Hope you sort it.

My water system doesn't pressure or lose any water it sounds like a miss fire and unburnt fuel out of the exhaust thanks for reply any body else had anything like this

Does the engine note change to a load diesel knock as they have problems with the 2nd fuel solenoid on them but also chech egr they are temperamental on them. If you increase the revs from the pump does the engine rock and shake.is it missing on tickover ?

The engine doesn't sound knocky when its idling its really grunting struggling to stAy going and dumping loads of smoke out it worst at idle and when i rev it it better than at idle but it still not rite no real shaking or rocking bit but not mad when revving

What about the egr flap is that shut or open when you rev it ?

After many head scratching moments and a few swear words i fixed it i think was checking things then i thought il have a look through the paper work on it then looks like it had a clutch recently so thought id check crank sensor.
The plastic outer casing was damaged on it so new one ordered £11 euro parts fixed it.The sensor must of been breaking down once the van got going. Once the van was running i took for test drive parked it up revving then took off again normal it would chug again blow a bit of smoke so i booted it and would be ok again so I've unplug air flow meter seems fine now also the egr is still blocked off

Hello there if your using supermarket fuel THEN STOP! That's where your smoke is coming from use non supermarket fuel when you change over from supermarket to esso/shell the first lot use premium 20/30 quid get the crap fuel out as the supermarket fuel has traces of water and high ethonol levels in!

Fuel all comes from the same place ok yes there may be slight blend differences but its all the same !

You also failed to read that it was fixed !
