Puff of smoke when first start
#1
Hello all, i have a 08 reg diesel interprise which i bought two weeks ago. It runs very well and i am very happy with it. I have noticed that the last couple of mornings when i first start it there is a puff of white smoke which clears after initial start. Is this something to be worried about?

Check oil/water for contamination.If OK may just be condensation in cold weather.Keep an eye on the levels.

With my old ZX diesel, that was the first sign of the glowplugs needing replacing. It gradually got harder to start. Turn the key to the 2nd notch and leave it there until the orange glowplug light goes off (couple of seconds). Does it do the same?

Thanks for the advice, changed the glowplugs and all is sorted. Cheers
