List of Problems:

1. When i turn on my car it smokes, and its very thick smoke

2. when i drive the car it sounds like a truck, changed the CAT and still sounds the same?

3. When driving at 50 to 60 km i feel on the gas pedal and hear a loud grinding noise, its not the brakes, could it be the Cam Gear? when i i hear it and quickly relase the gas it goes away


Please someone help me out?

what color is the smoke. Black smoke indicates that your vehicle is running very rich (too much fuel, very little air intake), blue smoke indicates that you are burning oil, and white smoke indicates an internal coolant leak.

Now if your car is sounding like a diesel engine, your motor mounts may be faulty. it sounds weird, but its true. I see this all the time on the 211. if the mounts are leaking then thats the cause, if not leaking, still change them. I would have to hear the noise to better determine if its the mounts or another issue.

as far as the other noise, would have to hear it to tell.
