Hi all,

Got hopefully a relatively quick question, my 2002 GT TDi 150 when cold started after its been sat a while, normally on a morning when leaving for work I get a plume of smoke for a couple of seconds, looks mostly black/maybe even slightly bluey. It runs and pulls fine and has not been remapped or anything, is this normal or shouldn't it fire out a load of smoke on cold start? If it makes a difference I run it on Shell vPower Diesel?!

If it is leaking a bit of oil I would of suspected turbo seal or valve stem seals but the turbo was only replaced a year ago? Its done 107,000 miles as well...

Cheers for any ideas [Y]
