    Default blue smoke

    hi could anyone give me some advice brought a used vectra estate sri cdti (150) at the weekend drove it home and was very pleased with it.
    Took it out today and was shocked to see blue smoke coming out the rear, I managed to turn back and get it home, whilst this was happening the car still drove and felt the same as before. I called the garage I brought it from and took it back for him to look at. The whole drive back went without a fault no blue smoke nothing!!! Still pulled really well and drove like a dream, the car is with him now for his mechanic to check over Monday.
    Could this be the dpf cleaning itself as performance hasn’t changed and feels like a really responsive car.
    I’m also worried as I have the spanner symbol on the dash with the outline of the car on it, as I said it drives really well as I’ve drove a couple of these cars this one feels on a par or better. The manual says it may be residual water in fuel filter?
    Any help with this would be appreciated

    The spanner symbol is showing a fault code so there is something for the garage to look at while they have it.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    what about the smoke do you think this is nothing to worry about as it stopped and never effected the car performance?

    I wouldn't like to say. It could be a dpf regen but then again it could be something else.
