Depending on your miles you could have worn componants in the engine.
you gould be getting to much fuel from leaky injectors and then when the fuel burns
off you are ok. This condition can start putting fuel in your oil. The most common is
oil stem seals. This condition will also start to smoke while just idleing for a while.
Thanks for the reply. My mileage is 100,000 miles and the vehicle doesn't give off any smoke whilst idling. I guess it could then be a drippy injector ? If this is the case, would it be harmful to the engine- I change theoil every 3-4 thousand miles.
Hi again Danny, Well I had the injectors serviced and it's the same my man.
Diesel fuel is obviously leaking into the engine at night. It is especially smoky when it is really cold, down to 14 Fahrenheit. Where else could diesel get in except for the injectors ?
