Hi all, hope someone can help or at least point me in the right direction... I have a 54 plate Ford C-Max Zetec 2.0 tdci approx 40k miles. Recently it has been a little hesitant to start, in that it will fire, judder a little then cut out but always starts fine on the 2nd or 3rd attempt. However, today it started first time but would not accelerate, in fact if i pressed the accelerator it would cut out, i also noticed that it was kicking out a cloud of smoke from the exhaust on starting, there was also a noticeable slight smell of burning! Now the car will not start at all unless i press the accelerator but then cuts out a after a short while. Any ideas / help appreciated !
