1. Agents changed Cam belt
2. On instruction form Fiat S.A. Changed iol from Castrol TXT softec to a synthetic oil.
Engine had to be flushed out before changing oil type
After the service the car lost power
Travelled home (+- 250 Km)
When starting the following morning the car starteds normally but after 3-5 minutes startd belching out Blue smoke and the engine miss-fired baldy
I drove the vehicle for +- 10minutes and the smoke cleared and the car was normal except for being under-powered.
Returned the car to the Agents - They discovered that the Oil Gate to the Turbo was blocked and replaced the Turbo (Carbon dislodged from Flushing Engine?)
I suspected that:
i) The cambelt timing was out but the agents checked this
ii) The Agents put fuel in the car and I suspect that someone had mistakenly put in a small qty of petrol bfore realizing their mistake
The car was returned to me and the car was stiil under-powered and the above smoking problem perisited
The car was returned to the agents and a compression test was done but proved to be within acceptable tange
The injectors were replaced and the car returened to me
I travelled home (+-250 Km) and the same result as obove - Starting easily but smoking and missing after 3-5 mins.
The car was returned to the Agents who are now totally baffled as to the cause of the problem.
have the same problem?
