    Exclamation any ideas !!

    Hi all, quick question I have a 2006 signum 1.9cdti 150, missis picked me up earlier, she had only been driving it for five minutes. Quite alot of white smoke appearing. Parked up and left the car for 15 minutes, started it up again and no smoke but engine seemed very warm, always does being a diesel. Turbo sounds ok and all fluids seem up to there correct levels, any body got any ideas as it is spinning my head !!!!!!!

    Sounds like a dpf regen to me too. You should always let it finish too.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    the dpf fills up with soot and every now and again, the car burns the soot off and blasts smoke out of the back.

    its pretty normal so dont worry.

    when you see it smokeing agen let it run dont turn car off it will stop after ten min or so if you driveing and it happens just keep driveing it DONT STOP IT HALF WAY (it wont hurt the car but it wont burn the DPF for long enuff and in the end will clog up there £300 to replace or take the insides out of the DPF and get the regen taken off the ecu vx will do regens for you at a cost of £60 a time there fine if you drive long distence but a pig on short ones (i do short and after say 5k it had clogged person before me had it till like 90/100k and never a prop) so if it happens agen just drive down moter way or stay still and hold revs at 2000rpm till it stops
