    Boost issue is sorted, the actuator was stuck.

    Car now runs rough and smokey when cold but once it's running 3 or 4 mins it runs fine.

    Cylinder 1 seems to be operating 20c lower than the other 3 cylinders.

    I'm gonna have injectors checked & Tested and see what that shows.

    Had all 4 injectors checked Ultra Sonic cleaned and flushed out, Diesel shop gave me a bottle of (VW recommended) fuel additive and tells me my problem will be gone after a bit of driving with the additive. 👍

    So injectors being mechanically plugged or stuck open & leaking and no misfire codes, who would of thought that even possible?

    Magical chemicals to rescue the FOD?

    Does your region use ethanol base or blended fuels too?

    Since he has a diesel engine, I rather doubt there is ethanol in the fuel he's using.

    -Uwe-
    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Huh......But what about bio-diesel?

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biofue..._United_States

    In e-diesel blends, standard diesel fuel (such as US No. 2) is typically blended with up to 15% (by volume) of ethanol using an additive package that helps maintain blend stability and other properties—most importantly cetane number and lubricity. The additive package may comprise from 0.2% to 5.0% of the blend.

    I've done nothing different but had injectors cleaned and ran about half a tank of fuel with the additive and the car is now running 100%

    Thanks again to anyone that offered help 👍
