aaz engine white/ light grey smoke?

Postby conkers » 17 Sep 2011, 20:52

Hi my t25 diesel has started kicking out white, sometimes slightly grey smoke on start up and going up hill.... i suspect unburnt diesel and therefore injectors?
Strangely my daily driver, a diesel *whispers shame-faced* avensis has been doing the same thing, but with a slight blue tinge.
Any advice? :)

general rule.
white/grey = water burnt
black = fuel unburnt
blue = oil burnt.

is there excessive pressure in the water pipes / water loss.

??? both cars doing it ???? bad fuel.
it`s a big round cage and there`s too many animals in it for my liking. To help address this ring lee on 07977 765818.
