    Default startup issues and some more

    guys, vectra cdti sri.

    when i start it up when cold it emits plenty of white fumes out the exhaust pipe, the flexi joint is split and fumes come out of there aswell. what running issues will a split flexi joint cause?

    also why does it spill smoke out the rear on startup and dissapear after say 3 mins?

    ive also noticed the engine sounding tickier recently if that makes sense, more than the usual injector tick.

    my 3rd injector wiring looks ok but hasnt been updated.

    the spanner light appears on startup and goes after 5 mins or so.

    no fault codes stored and my egr has been mapped out but not blanked.

    swirl bar is connected and operates ok.

    there is a little whine on acceleration aswell

    any help please

    Erm, right.

    Smoke on start-up is quite normal and disappears when the fuelling adjusts I imagine. Mine does it and I'm not worried at all. As for the flexi-joint, my honest answer is I don't know if it'll cause any problems but I'd personally get it fixed sooner rather than later...

    Spanner light coming on at start-up and disappearing after 5mins or so is usually a glow plug problem. Solution is replacement glow plugs.

    3rd injector and swirl bar problems are on the 150 16v and as such I have no clue as I have the 8v 120.

    Hope I've helped a little bit. Dave.
