That's the last thing I need.
In terms of symptoms:
~ I occasionally, on first start I get white smoke blown out, but its faint and is blown out instantly.
~ Engine temps good.
~ Coolant level drops about an inch a month (1000 miles)
~ Engine appears to be running fine, no rough idling, no skipping or hesitancy.
~ No blown caps or excessive pressure from unscrewing / putting them back on.
~ No obvious signs of leakage on hoses.
~ Engine oil normal colour, not milky.
~ Anti-Pollen Filter Clogged / Excessive Radiator Fluid warning began around the time I had issues with my EGR valve clogging which was removed and blanked.
~ Shuddery starts maybe once a day with Anti-Pollen Filter Clogged / Excessive Radiator Fluid warning (Sometimes I don't get the warning message).
~ On a side note I did also get the a 'Temperature Sensor / Coolant sensor error' at one point aswell, just can't remember the exact code.
Just started car , and it did the faint white smoke after a little cough on start. Turned off. Started again fine. Popped bonnet, no leakage to note, oil all correct colour, no odd sounds, temps at 50degrees solid on idle. I do have some ReDex Diesel cleaner in there, but it has been doing this prior to me putting this in anyhow.
Also note this shuddery starting has started to get bad since the plug on the fuel filter came loose and spilt diesel over the road and engine. Not sure if due to the pressure lost in the fuel filter that I now need to replace as it was replaced I think with my service one month ago.
