    Default Does your diesel smoke on start up?

    I have a potential buyer for my vectra but his put off by the way it smokes for a few seconds on start up from cold.

    He thinks its the valve stem seals?

    A little puff of grey smoke can be quite "normal" I would say for cars not equipped with a DPF mine does it to suit itself sometimes it does some not depending on lots of factors sometimes I note if I touch the gas before turning or during turning the key it responds with a wee cloud

    ah well man hes an ejit for not buying because of that, it would be a different story if it was blowing out blue smoke, blue for oil black for to much fuel amd white for condensation/water in the exhaust.

    My 52 reg 2.2 DTi SRi (92k miles) - Little bit of grey on cold start only, nothing when warm.

    My missus' 56 reg 1.9 CDTi SRi (122k miles) - Big black cloud when cold, nothing when warm.


    Both do not smoke during normal driving, unless thrashed up to about 4k revs. Even then, it's not that bad...

    Did you do the fatal thing and point it out?

    Sounds like someone after a hard haggle
    If they didn't shake on a deal on first viewing, then leave them be
    Golden rule of private deal : sold as seen

    However, once money has changed hands I will often advise on items the new owner might want to consider, if they hadn't already asked
