Hello. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you today.
Does the smoke reduce as the engine warms up?
no the smoke does not reduce
I would first check the cylinder head temperature sensor as it maybe telling the engine ecu the engine is cold when it isn't and overfuelling.
i will check engine temp sensor and if it checks out ok is there any other suggestions on this problem'
Water in the fuel filter or contaminated fuel. Has it recently been filled, possibly with petrol?
the fuel filter and air filter have been changed and has not had any petrol put in by mistake
The next thing would be to check the cylinder compressions as that is about all that is left.
could the hp pump be at fault
Possibly, but normally it wouldn't cause white smoke.
