    It sounds like your dpf is regeneration to me on your drivers door plate have a look you will have a number like 0.5 in a little box on the bottom left of the sticker

    The Diesel Particulate Filter of DPF will clean itself every so often and in order to do this it superheats the DPF to burn off all the excess soot. Whilst it is doing this blue smoke eminates from your car and everybody stays clear!! As I understand it is normal and you just have to continue to drive, preferable in an agressive manner, until it has finished. Normally takes 10 to 15 mins to complete depending on stlye of driving. I know as have the same issue in my Zafira but it ended up replacing the DPF (£1200) and then 6 months later a regen from VX before I eventually was told the truth!!!

    also man if your turbo seals did go before, there will more that likely still be alot of oil getting burnt out of pipe work/ intercooler and cat/dpf, but if its just started all of a sudden and not straight after a turbo replace, then what owengh says sounds about right

    what do you mean by tickover?

    try to drive 30 km and see if he still has it
    if it is your dpf then it wil burn empty
