Here just trying to get the car running right and i little update on my 300zx project
I bought my wife a 2004 Audi A4 2.5 TDi Cabriolet. It had minor front end damage so I repaired it but when I started the car up it gives off a massive amount of white smoke. It smells of unburnt diesel. The car was owned from new by an elderly couple, it's only covered 65k and has full service history.
