    Default peugeot 505 turbo diesel problems no power

    have fitted new injectors and filter bowl- can't seem to bleed system of air-blows white smoke-could the waste gate be stuck open? No power getting to g/box [auto]. Any suggestions for fix appreciated as would like to be able to go on outback runs.

    White smoke usually goes away when the engine warms up. If it hangs around it could be water from a damaged head gasket etc, or it could be unburnt diesel fuel from faulty injectors (but yours are new), bad timing, or low compression (eg the head gasket again, or crook rings or valves).

    White smoke from water doesn't smell like fuel based smoke.

    What injector pump do you have. Mine would blow white smoke when it's starving of fuel...lean mix. Check your return line to see if sucking air

    Are you sure it's all bled properly?

    I've had issues with getting the air out of them in the past. Bleed at the filter and then crack the lines at the injectors?

    On one of my cars I had a slightly perished hose that was letting air in the system when the car stopped.

    Cheers & good luck

    If you have been working on the injectors, it might be a good idea to recheck all the fuel line are correctly fitted and that there are no cracks in the lines. It could be sucking air in from a small leak, which would produce the symptoms you are describing.
