1986 Daihatsu Charade 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 304000 miles

Hi there,

I drive a charade g11 turbo. I have just has a carby overhaul as there was a crack in the grommit and was leaking fuel when I drove. Since fixing this the car now smokes out the exhaust. It is a gray smoke that smells very strong of engine (most the best description but that what it smells of). It smokes more when I am idle at the light and smokes a lot when I stay on the bite at traffic lights. I hope this is enough information to try and get some answers. Im praying its nothing too serious.

Do you
