Engine Mechanical problem
2003 Volkswagen Golf 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 55000 miles
I have had the thermostat and the temp sensors all replaced - as fault codes were showing for these when tested - but my car still is blowing grey smoke at or just after start up (only in the morning). The engine also will miss when you press the accelerator the first time. The problem goes away after 5-10 seconds and the car is then fine for the rest of the day. Could it be the valve stem guides? If it is these shouldn't a problem show up up on the fault codes? This probably isn't relevant, but it only started having this problem the day I left my lights on over night and it had to be jump started in the morning. It was funny that morning and has been since.
have the same problem?
