    Hello i'm new to the group
    i have a 2007 Alhambra 2.0 tdi BRT engine code
    The car has just had full top end rebuild also water pump and timing belt
    problem started after i towed a car it was smoking badly checked car turbo gone . Replaced turbo still smoking stem seals and cam bearings changed as showing wear.
    finally rebuilt last week took it out idling normal plenty of power driving lovely .
    Soon as car got hot water light on as i expected refilled with hot water took it back out it started rough idling then while driving it sounded like a bag of marbles had been thrown into engine then when touched accelerator it went away ease off it was back also smoking again some black and some white/grey
    pulled into unit turned off and car wont start tried couple times checked timing thinking belt gone it looks ok
    engine cooled it starts but sounds rough .
    the problem is the exact problem it had the day i towed the other car home vauxhall meriva
    I am at a loss as to what the problem is
    Can anyone help please
    Thanks for reading
    Mark
