    Default White Smoke 1.9 CDTI 120

    Another fault with my 06 Vectra.

    I would say 2-3 times a month now the engine decides to smoke. It's white smoke and smell like oil/diesel which rises from the engine bay. It seems to go after it is turned off and restarted. The car runs fine otherwise, no smoke from exhaust and has been recently serviced. As it's only happening now and again, I can't get out and see exactly where it's coming from. Anyone give me advise on what to check or has experienced this too? I was looking at cleaning the EGR are too, where is this located on the 120?

    Cheers.

    I'm hoping that this was the culprit!

    I'm just cleaning it for now. If you note the space in the washer, I turned this around when re assembling to match the grooves on the flange. Fingers crossed!

    Well it smoked after I cleaned the EGR. Looks like it's coming from the turbo area. I thought if the turbo was compromised there would be white smoke from exhaust?
