Hi All,

My 1.6 HDI (90bhp) smokes quite a lot on a cold start up. I have just had the glow plugs replaced (£165 is that a lot?), two of the plugs didn't work, but this hasn't stopped the smoking. What would be my next step?
Cheers,
Dibsy.

Maybe it's me, but I'd call that a lot.

165£ is not a lot. The plugs cost 15£ (or more) each and there is a lot of plastic breakable things to move to even get to them. Then there is the risk of a stuck/broken plug. Seems like a good price.

The smoking could be a lot of things.
In general:
Black smoke=soot, poor combustion, start with air filter and clean intake so it get more air
Blue smoke=oil burning, valve guides if its just in the start otherwise rings or turbo, start with an oil change to get rid of diesel diluted oil.
White smoke=steam from fuel or water, most often normal if its cold, either from an worn engine or just the normal water coming from combustion. Check coolant to be sure.

Glow plugs do not affect the smoke from the engine

Relay will not help either

Only fuel mixture or oil getting into the intake/combustion chamber will make smoke depends what colour the smoke is as to what is causing it.

Could be a leaking injector couldn't it?

Would start by doing a injector leak off test to see if there is one of them giving different returnflow than the others.
