Already have one but, when running there is constant white smoke from exhaust, thsi is not steam as it does it even if i empty the cooling system. when it warms up the idling gets worse then sudedenly very rattly as though injector timing advances then cuts out.

Injectors seem fine, tried alternative pump, checked all fuel lines, it's not the cat or the EGR system and set the pump timing with correct tool and dial gauge.

It does get really hot though

Any suggestions diesel gurus

Thanks

the smoke sounds like an excess of diesel so could be a number of things like the pressure relief valve in the pump pump failure or a stuck open injector

first thing I would try is some diesel injection redex fuel system cleaner

inspect all vacuum lines to the pump controlling the fuel in accordance with manifold presure

also see if you can borrow some pressure testing equipment and get some technical data on your car for such tests
