Within minutes of leaving the garage I had problems with low acceleraton and smoke billowing out of the exhaust. Things seemed to settle down quickly and I put it down to water getting ino the exhaust (they alway clean the car with a pressure washer when you you visit this particular garage) and the ECU software being reset and there not being enough time passed for it to adapt to my driving style.
The perfomance problems continued over the weekend and I also experienced a smell of buring oil whenever I drove the car. Again, things seemed to settle down albeit with accleration not being a great and, in particular, flat spots in second gear, However, yesterday morning my speed suddenly dropped dramictically and smoke started to emerge from the exhaust - and, I mean a serious amount of the stuff. I couldn't accelerate but the car would occassionally surge forward - which was not a very nice thing to experience. I immediately took it back to the garage and left it all day. They said that the mass air flow sensor was faulty and needed to be changed and that this problem was unrelated to the software update. However, it seems a mighty strange coincidence that it should fail within seconds of leaving the garage.
The upshot is that they want £240 to replace it. This coming on top of the £600 I spent a month ago for a service and having the wiper linkages replaced and the £600 approximately 1 year ago replacing the diesel particulate filter. As you can probably appreciate, I am not a happy bunny and I am currently searching for somewhere I can get it done cheaper.
