200 tdi exhaust gasket replacement advice
Just got my truck back after having the 200 tdi installed. Man, what a huge difference! Nice to keep up with traffic, even on the hills. Anyway, I've been using it daily for the last week and have noticed on startup a small puff of black/ gray smoke coming from the rear of the engine, behind the turbo; looks to be coming from the manifold. If i accelerate, i get small puffs of smoke in the engine bay. I get the "normal" quick black puff of smoke from the exhaust on start up. Truck runs relatively well. I'm looking to replace the manifold gasket, turbo to manifold gasket, and install an egt probe for a vdo gauge in the manifold. I have the workshop manual, and it looks pretty straightforward. Any tips or watch outs from anyone? Thanks in advance.
