I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question.

Ok, there are few possible causes -

fuel injectors worn and allowing too much fuel

high pressure fuel pump faulty

turbo failing

worn piston rings

Because there doesnt seem to be a loss in performance, I more suspect the injectors or pump. An injector balance test and fuel pressure test need to be done in order to determine which is at fault and then make necessary repair

Hi Eric thanks for responding having had the vehicle since new and the problem has been there since day 1 might add the dealer wasn't interested I'dont think it is any of the said causes do you think it would be possible if the injectors or pump have not been set since new
Expert:  Eric replied 1 year ago.


Ok, that being the case, I suspect the high pressure pump was calibrated and set up incorrectly out of the factory. Sometimes you can get away with simply recalibrating it with a scan tool, and other times it will need to be partially rebuilt to set it up properly.
