    Default Smokey 2002 2.2 dti sri

    Hi all. Looking for some suggestions as to what might cause my car to smoke heavily on start up after it has stood for a while. It doesn't appear to be temperature related, just when it stands for a bit. Smoke is white/grey in colour and smells of fuel rather then oil. No ecu lights either..... at the moment. Thanks.

    To be honest i think they all do , mine certainly does or used to try, putting some millers in with your next fill up .
    Or it could just be a build up of carbon deposits around the egr valve /exhaust manifold area

    Yeah, I appreciate that it will smoke being a diesel - it's the amount of smoke that bothers me. I'll probably give the EGR a good clean if for no other reason than just because.

    It will look worse than it is in the cold but my CDTI does it, white/grey smoke sounds right as long as it is not blue then you have nothing to worry about.
