    Default 2.2DTI smokes heavily on start-up

    Hey Guys,

    Just a quick one, my 2.2DTI Signum (2003) smokes heavily on start-up from cold. Enough to fill my driveway and embarassing when out in public and I smoke out the street. people cross the road to avoid it!

    It billows white smoke out for the first 30-ish seconds then subsides to a "normal" (for a diesel) level.

    my guess is that the glowplugs prob just need changing, but though i'd get some more opinions....

    It's just white smoke, no blue or black colouration BTW.

    I had a vec B sri 2.2dti that did the same thing for about 15 seconds, the colder the weather the worse it was, changing the glow plugs would make it better until next winter, always found that one of the glow plugs was always a bit oily but to be honest it never got any worse so I would just change the glow plugs every winter.
