well lads!

if there is smoke from the exhaust when the car is started from cold, can you define what this could be? the car is running 100% starting fine, turbo is spoiling as normal, doesnt seem to be down in power? not buning anymore oil or using accessive water? everything seems the same and its not long after a service, new fuel filter,oil filter, oil etc...... :huh:

just when the car is started from cold and it is idling it would be smokey for a while until driven and then it seems to clear itself? i know i should be using decent fuel, but the only fuel i can get near me is BP ultimate diesel? but nowadys how do you know what you are getting at the pumps? what can i do?

could anyone help.... :(

Kevy if your manifold is cracked then it's drawing air in which will make the problem a bit worse. It's nothing serious, just get the manifold fixed.

Nice one if you get any problems with the dealers let us no and we will point you in the right way.Its crazy as some dealers try and pull a fast one and say the car is not covered on some extended warrantys.To be honest i cant see any problems i had a new VSA unit under warranty a couple of months ago and no problems at all :)

We had exactly the same symptoms on a Toyota and it was cured by new glow plugs. I asked them to check them first but being a main dealer they changed the lot without asking.

No more whiteish blueish smoke on start up. Seems it is caused by poor combusion of fuel in the cylinder with the dodgy glow plug. When it gets warm the smoke disappeared. BTW, condensation 'smoke' would be white I think.

Hope this helps. ( sorry to mention the T word )

Hi all,

I'm having very similar problems.

I've had my car serviced with genuine honda parts from HH and 0w 30 oil from lubetech.
I thought I had a problem with oil consumption but this has miraculously stopped. However, I have since discovered that the garage I had used for servicing had put too much oil in by half a litre. I got the excess oil sucked out via the dip stick but now have a P*** of white smoke on start up from cold.

The smoke is definitley white not blue.

Its also only a P*** and disappears instantly after start up. However, there is a lot of white smoke and I can quite clearly see the smoke from my mirrors.

So what do I do?

Since I've got this car, I wanted to make sure all was fine before I got a remap done to ensure all was fine but I seem to encounter one problem after another. After start up the car drives fine and no more smoke. Pulls strongly although has a turbo whistle louder than I would have liked though.

The internet has all sorts of suggestions from valve seals to glow plugs, egr and injectors etc. Not sure where to start from really.

Any suggestions?

Also I had a white smoke on start up when I had the smaller battery when I bought it. I ***umed this was due to unburnt diesel due to extra cranking but the problem has since reappeared. I'm not sure if it is related to the extra oil (half a litre) or something else.

I only use v power diesel after reading recomendations on here.

To top of my woes, my search of pentas has led to a wasted trip to Sheffield and an ebay seller who doesn't want to allow a courier to pick the wheels up.

As Lord Sugar says "my search for my perfect accord continues"

Thanks all in advance.

Hi ive just brought an accord tourer i-ctid its a 2004 and has 114k on the clock and it runs very sweet starts on the button plenty of power . Just returned 51mpg on a 150mile run and i wasnt holding it back. Any way it does P*** a bit of white smoke on start up only when the engine is cold and im sure there is a blue tinge to it and it does smell but is only does this about 60% of the time. So far ave changed the oil wih 0-30w fully synthetic changed the fuel filter witha genuine honda one the airfilter with a blue print one. And ve been using tesco fuel. Does anyone have any sugestions. Could it be dodgy glow plugs. Other than that the car realy is great.

Thanks in advance ray

First thing I would check is when the glow plugs were done, had this exact same problem on my 1.3 CDTI Corsa few weeks ago.

Manifold warranty is 7 years up to 125k but if your just over & you contact Honda UK they usually look after you, just keep fighting!

Thanks is there anyway to test them or shall i just replace them. And are glowplugs from a motor factors ok or is the accord fussy on them like it is the fuel filter. Thanks
