Can anyone help with a T4 1.9td (ABL) that smokes only on start up. After a minute or two the exhaust emissions look normal (none!).
I'm told it is probably excess, unburnt fuel vapour not smoke at all. Any suggestions as to the cause. I'm beginning to pee orf the neighbours :(

To be honest, being a diesel its not un-common for them to smoke on startup and there isnt much that can be done...

Buy the neighbours some ventilation masks to wear for the few minutes til it warms up. :)

Smoking sorted

Turns out it is the glow plug in No 1 cylinder gorn awol. Simple and easy to remedy! The neighbours are relieved too! :)
