    Default Help smoke from engine

    Hi guys,
    Came back from a 200 mile drive last night, parked the car up and started it this morning and there is smoke and an oil burning smell comming from the injector? Does anyone have an idea of what it could be?
    Thanks

    are the injectors weeping?

    A long journey would allow the weep to build up and then burn off.

    Injector seal has gone, its just a flat copper washer really speaking, remove the injector clean bottom of hole & clean the injector where the washer sits & repace. torque settings for injector clamp maybe found in the 'how 2' section,
