    Default SRI CDTI 150 Blue smoke on startup

    Hi,

    New to the forum, seems like on cold get a cloud of blue smoke and occassional judder at low revs, I've just purchased OP-COM and checked the car for any faults, nothing recorded which is a good thing but concerned with the blue smoke. It's seems like a slight misfire when it's juddering, I ran the special tests in OP-COM which should report values for the 4 injectors, unfortunately all the 4 values displayed were 0.00 and did not change even though I rev'd the car. I expected some deviation from the special tests so concerned why it was just displaying 0.00.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Blue smoke is normally a sign of oil being burnt.
    If its worse when its been standing normally valve stem oil seals

    Injectors are not running corectly and it missfires for a couple of seconds. Only then it burns some of the oil that makes its way into the combustion chamber.

    Hi,

    The car had 2 glow plugs failed which have been replaced, I still of this juddering on idle and at low rev's, I've not lost any power as the performance is still there, whilst it's juddering I do notice blue smoke from the exhaust and also discovered blue smoke upon heavy acceleration....I've had the injectors tested by my local garage by a leak off test, all four filled the pots up about the same....I'm still suspecting that this is likely a injector problem as the juddering feels like a misfire....if anybody can shed some light on this issue I'd be very grateful.....Thanks
