|02 2.0 Low on power/exhaust smoke suddenly appeari - AllanN|
Hi guys. I have a 307 SW(SE) with and HD110 engine
Recently it has been very low on power. I had the MAF changed and there is a noticable difference at the 2800/3000 levels but it still seems sluggish at lower revs and when its cold. The air filter has been changed and I was going to change the fuel filter and disconnected the 3 fuel feeds and the electrical connection. Unfortunately the wrench I had was not big enough for the housing top,so I reconnected the fuel leads etc
The car started and idled over without any problem so at this time I decided to use a charge and start cable (I have never used this before) to boost the battery on another car. During this time the 307 started to blow smoke from the exhaust - it has never done this before
There are no fault codes and showing and I cannot see how the charge and start cable has caused this problem
So I have 2 questions :
1) according to Haynes it is almost impossible to unscrew the filter top without damaging the housing. Is this true or is there a technique I can use to avoid damage
2) does anybody have any idea why the smoke has suddenly appeared?
Why would a sealed car battery not hold charge over a period of two weeks?
