Could someone please advise, I have White smoke from coming from my exhaust

Hi.

I have a fiat scudo 1.9d 2002 van, recently a lot of white smoke is coming from my exhaust, also the van is stuttering and very noisy.

If i move the harness for the wiring under the bonnet it sometimes stops. Any advise would be helpful.

thanks

Could be the EGR solenoid valve sticking. This is the device mounted (hanging) off the top of the engine compartment and has a couple of rubber pipes connected to it.

Since the movement of wire loom also affects the symptoms (are you absolutely SURE it stops the problem?) then perhaps the connecting wire TO the EGR solenoid valve is causing it.

As kellyseye states, sounds like the EGR valve, which would be responsible for the white smoke and stuttering. Very common Scudo problem. Simply get your garage to blank it off (50.00 max - 10 min job)

The van being noisy, if it sounds like an old transit but louder, will most likely be the electronic timing solenoid. The noise is actually a piston slap as the timing is out. You may have a loose connection or broken cable if moving the wiring harness stops it sometimes.
