Help Light Grey Exhaust smoke

It could be nothing but ive noticed alot of light grey smoke from the exhaust, not sure wether that's normal, any advice would be greatly appreciated. I recently added some deisel engine flush and some deisel redex to try and cure it, however tonight i revved the engine a few times and noticed some black smoke, then light grey smoke again!!!!!!!!

Would changing the airfilter make a difference??

Air filter will help, but have a go at cleaning the EGR too. Also check all intake and turbo pipes for splits if you've started to lose power.

Try a bottle of Forte Diesel treatment through your tank too. Hopefully this will improve things

Thanks , i have had the egr valve cleaned recently as it seemed a little slow of the mark and at times when driving at average speeds i would put my foot to the floor with no responce at all.
Will try the Forte Diesel treatment you suggested

It's fantastic stuff, for best results stick it in with 1/4 to 1/2 tank of fuel, not a whole tank as it suggests.

I've blanked off my EGR after finding it doesn't seal properly, runs better now

would you put all of the bottle in half a tank or half a bottle?
