Hi, I have recently been gifted a 2006 CDI and I’m having some trouble getting used to it.  It’s been sitting in BC for the past couple of years and I’m having an issue where it intermittently loses power and won’t rev over 3,000rpm.. from what I’ve been reading on this site .. it does seem like a plugged waste gate hose.  Does anyone know what the expected mileage would be if it’s not a plugged hose?

Welcome to the forum.  It should be fairly easy to get better than 4 litres per hundred km with the diesel.  I think you should probably talk to Izzy about your drivability issues.  He is in Edmonton and services smart cars from his home in his spare time   Contact info here.

Thank you!  I have texted him.

Be patient as he is a very busy guy during his day job. BUT he is a very knowledgeable guy when it comes to Smart cars!!!!   And a very nice guy to deal with.

Hahaha! Yes you did! 😃 and I Thank you 🙏🏻 

 

the EGR was super dirty and seemed almost seized right up, so Izzy replaced it for me.  Now it runs awesome!
