Hi everyonr.I need a little advice.....I recently bought a 147 ti turbo diesel,2007 reg.Now its only done 48k miles,serviced 2 weeks ago etc but I think there may be a problem!It struggles to start first thing in the morning and there is a very small amount of light blue smoke too,but only on startup.Once its started and warmed up,it runs very smoothly and pulls very well indeed...Im a little concerned about this to say the least!Should I run some fuel additive to clean the injectors and see if this helps or couldit be something else?Its still under warranty.....

Its likely to be the glow plugs if they weren't replaced at the service or a blocked EGR valve. Both should be easy to sort, you can inspect and clean the EGR yourself but leave replacing the glow plugs to them that can afford to encounter problems.
Regarding additives, just run it on decent fuel. BP ultimate in mine since I bought it 4 years ago.
