99 Focus TDI new plugs but still smokey & increasingly noisey

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  99 Focus TDI new plugs but still smokey & increasingly noisey

123,000 mi. on clock. exhibiting smoke on cold start-up as if glow plug was gone even though they are new. Increasing valve clatter noise over the past week. injector pump and cpu checked ok. injectors ok. cam shaft ok. cylinder number 4 compression at 4 bar just slightly lower than others. any ideas?

have your oil pressure checked dont trust the gauge or light sound like your not getting oil to the top half of the motor
