Smoke on start up ?

Post by nicksuch » 18 May 2002, 01:44

My 205 dt has started to puff a few clouds of white smoke when it has been left standing for more than 5 hours it feels like a missfire and clears in about 10 seconds never to do it again, if the car has only stood for about 3-4 hours it does not happen. There is no oil being used.

The white smoke is unburnt fuel most likely due to insufficient temperature being generated.
Air getting into the fuel supply, low compression and worn injectors are all possible causes, but start by testing the glow plug's for open circuit's, I would be surprised if you don't find a duffer.
Good Luck
