loads of smoke

Recommended Posts

I left the defender (200tdi) running in lockdown for an hour a week to keep the battery topped up .it started to get a bit smelly so took it for a spin and a huge cloud of white smoke bellowed out of the back .it cleared after a mile or so it runs smooth and starts on the button .it hasn't lost any water and burns no oil .there's nothing from the oil filler cap .the turbo is in good shape .has anybody got any ideas ?is it possibly dirty injectors?

Nothing to worry about IMO. Idling it like that never gets it properly hot and I think leaves unburnt fuel. Mine will do the same (especially if i forget theres veg oil in it and leave it idling whilst working round the fields). Take it for a good run and dont worry about it.
