Hi, Just joined which was something I should had done a long time ago :thumb:

I have an expert diesel van 1868cc registered on 2002. I have no mechanical experience and am in need of some help, thank you in advance.

Went out this morning and within quarter of a mile the van started jumping sparidically like I was in the wrong gear and then loads of whitish smoke pouring out of the exaust, so drove straight back home. On tickover it sounds like it has a miss fire but again could be totally wrong.

I'm just about to look under the hood for anything obvious (loose hoses) but beyond this I am lost and can find no manual I can purchase.

My son was a traineee mechanic but can't get hold of him but he should have the relevant tools to do any fixing.

Are there any pointers please you can help me with, totally reliant on the van for most of the time so completly gutted and worried.

Thank you to anyone who can spend some time helping me, or are local to hemel hempstead i can pay someone, am a bit reluctant to take to a garage as i have no idea if I am being stung etc...

Thank you in advance, Rod.

Just checked can't see any loose hoses, just started her up and sounds fine and no smoke. I have a diagnostic reader if the van has an OBD port, plus going to take for quick test drive hope it's okay to drive it quickly...Many thanks..

Well no error codes found on OBD reader, and test run is spot on no smoke and no miss firing.

Can anybody enlighten me as to the possible cause, as concerned it could happen again.

Plus anyone no where I can gain a manual please?

thank you,

Rod.

Best to start off with a diagnostics with Diagbox/Peueot Planet to see if any fault codes are stored.
There is a map on here with members who have the diagnostic kit.

You have the same problem as I have

Check several posts down. I haven't yet had the problem addressed, but I've observed that the harness is quite old and chapped & poorly protected to the point that insulation has peeled in certain places. I'm having it delivered to a mechanic on Wednesday for harness replacement and also intend to replace the Throttle potentiometer on the pump, then I 'll have diagnosis done to establish residual faults.

Wish me all the best, will keep you posted. :thumb:
