I dont get any white smoke but maybe having no EGR valve solves that?

I get some smoke when cold, hot starts nothing! I used to worry about it, but I'm not using any oil so I'm not concerned. It does run a bit lumpy as well, but only when starting from cold. New glow plugs made a little difference but not that much. It's a diesel thing
