Hi I'm Wayne

I will help you with this

after it warms up, does it clear up ??

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
once it warms up it clears up and seems to run fine but cold starts the idle goes from 800 rpm to 2000 rpm up and down it just started a week ago and it never done that before
Expert:  Wayne replied 7 months ago.


Thank you for that

what you are describing is a injector or 2 leaking the fuel(DRIPPING)

that is why it clears up when warm, and smoke clears

I suggest to replace the injectors

I hope this helped you
