    Default Chugging & blue smoke

    Hi,
    When I leave my car for long periods (8+ hours) when I start it, it chugs for about 30 secs and kicks out loads of blue smoke. After about 30 secs the engine levels out and the smoke goes?!?!
    I have changed fuel filter and the car actually has no problems starting and does not nearly stall it just sounds rough.

    Could the inlet manifold be causing this?

    It also runs fine when warm

    My cdti does the same, I was told it was because of the high miles (130.000) as the seals on the pistons are wereing out and when it sit's still the oil will drip past the seals and when you start up the oil has to burn of so comes out the back in blue smoke.

    130k is no high miles. Certainly not for piston ring failure on the 1.9, which is a VERY robust engine.
