    Guys help me out..... I have just had lots of blue smoke bellowing out of my accord, took it to the garage thinking it was a fuel leak as very strong smell of diesel, seems like it is coming from behind the engine to the right hand side but the fuel filter and pipes are all dry?? Also they have now told me that that is also where the exhaust blowing noise is coming from and not my flexi like they first told me! Could i have some sort of EGR gasket blown? Hopefully someone will help as they can't book it in properly until next wed!!

    As you're outside the warranty period see if Honda will do a good will gesture and put something towards the cost.

    Alternatively as there are lots of I-DTEC's about you could try second hand from a breakers.

    As Doc has said plead your car with HUK customer relations , provided you have dealer service history then you may get a favourable result in your favour or may be part funding if you don't have service history.

    let us know how you get along.
