    Mileage : 289,000

    Default Smokey V6 CDTI after idling...

    Not long had the car, an 04 with unknown milage but prob in excess of 120k, and have notice when stuck in traffic for a while, or idling for 10 mins or so, there a bit of blue smoke from the exhaust and an acrid eye watering smell.

    There's no smoke at start up, and just a puff of black when under higher load.

    Anyone any ideas, I'm wondering if its lweaping turbo oil seals allowing oil to drip into the hot exhaust and evaporating.

    Puff of black smoke under load indicates that there are problems with the EGR but you don't really need to worry about it as a lot of high mileage V6CDTi engined cars smoke.

    My turbo ran fine at 165k and it was still original.
    As for the blue smoke I would check the turbo shaft for play. Hope you don't have any, but in case you do I have a barely used turbo for a prefacelift V6CDTi
