Smoking start - how bad should it be??
Advice welcome = is this normal??
159 2.4 jtdm 210 - standard, DPF still fitted, EGR nice and clean and operating properly. 30,000miles, millars suppliment in the fuel - normal proportion. Usual mpg [for the model!!]
Now and again I get a really smoky start. Clouds for a few seconds then clear a a bell. Same procedure each time. From cold. Fob in, glow plug light off, press starter, starts up and she's running but a look in the mirror and there can be [on occasion] clouds of blue smoke rolling across the drive. Only happens maybe 1 in 5 starts. Is this usual?
