Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

Is or has the check engine light come on with this fault here at all or have the fault codes been checked at all?

Is the exhaust blowing black smoke at all?

Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.
