I have a 2005 Kia Rio 1.5 CRDI that is playing up at the moment. Most of the time you start it and everything works perfectly.
Sometimes when you start it the idle is slow and even with the throttle on full it struggles to a 1000 revs, sometimes if you turn it off and turn it back on it is fine again, other times it can take 20 minutes of turning it on and off before it will rev normally.
The engine doesn't sound right and there is a lot of smoke (but that could just be because the throttle is right down)
Does anyone have any ideas??

welcome please fill out your profile some more. A general location where you live will help everyone to help you better. Any engine codes? How many miles on the car and did you perform all routine maintenance. Best guess is a fuel system or electrical issue. Dont over look a blocked cat and vacuum leaks also. And check the IAC valve isn't stuck. Good luck and keep us posted. Reguard's Ronjohn.
