Re: John Dobson

2.8 Diesel. It is worse cold but Still not right when warmed up.
If the revs are increased gradually to 3000, every thing sounds good, return to idle stamp the accelerator to the floor for a second and there is smoke, white blue and a miss fire. I am aware of the way older diesels behave but newer ones are more of a mystery.
