    Default smoking after service

    Just had my car serviced and it had the glow plugs renewed, but everythin else was fine. I got the car back and it is now smoking really bad white smoke from the exhaust and it smells. What could be wrong please help. I have a vauxhall signum 1.9 cdti

    Could be that they haven't sealed things back up properly and air is being induced into the system.

    Could it just be the protective film on the glow plugs?

    Angry turbo smoking

    Finally found out the problem. The bloke we had the car off put thick oil in to stop the turbo smoking, because it was on its way out. Had the service done and put the right oil in and the problem came back. The turbo is knackered got get a new one.
