Are you sure you want to remove the head, have you checked to see if the inlet manifold flaps are ok.

thanks for reply.........not sure what else to do....the inlet has been removed and all was ok flaps intact etc not really that clogged up either,gave it a clean before refitting and also can see the rods working when you rev it up so servo must be ok.

Hi so it’s back to the "sticky inlet valve" diagnosis
Why do you think its that
What are the symptoms leading to this diagnosis?
Inlet manifold malfunction might have showed up on star diagnosis

on idle its a mist of black smoke and also when you give it a quick blip of revs it smokes but if you rev it up and hold it their to anything over 3500rpm it clears and doesnt smoke and does not missfire either...until it idles again.
bearing in mind it has had 5 new injectors.
the only fault read was number 3 injector open connection.

hi and thanks for reply.....on idle there is a mist of black smoke but when you rev it up 3500rpm and over and hold it there it is almost clear.
i had it compression tested and they said all 5 cylinders were below 10bar...but the car starts first time every time no problem at all(not the signs of low compression on a diesel i would say)
anyway they were itching to take engine in bits but i said no.
its had 5 new injectors.
on the tech machine it just comes up injector 3 open curcuit.
like its over fueling to counter fault.
thats where i am up to.
plus it has a slight miss fire on idle too but reved up it goes with the smoke.
