Smokey Disco


Recommended Posts


My father has a 1994 300tdi Discovery. If it hasnt been started for day or two, it smokes badly when you start it up. It continues to smoke for about 5-10mins, and after that there is no smoke at all. The engine runs sweetly, and their is no nasty sounds coming from the engine. The smoke is white.

Does anyone know what is causing this, or is it normal?

Thanks in advance, Tom.

The only other thing that comes out as white smoke is oil burning in the exhaust housing on the turbo, but usually when a turbo oil seal fails they just empty all the oil either into the inlet and run away or exhaust and then sieze if not noticed due to no oil.
