Question about 2007 Mitsubishi L-200 2.5
My 2008 L-200 2.5 when starting for the first time for the day starts well after it is glowed,if i run for about 5 to 10 miles and rest for 2 hours the vehicle takes a long time to fire up and when is does fire up white puff of smokes comes from the exhaust,what can you suggest i can do to remedy the situation?
Could be a coolant leak into the cylinder. (head gasket leak) use a five gas scanner to check for hydrocarbons in cooling system.

sounds like valve guids are wearing out.. drying out and cracking. only fix is to replace them. or try a heavier oil. sometimes that will help depending on the severity of the problem.

White smoke is a sign of unburnt diesel fuel, check your glowplugs as thats the most common cause when starting .It will start but not hot enough to burn fuel at start up, also check glowplug relay if not the plugs

HAVE YOU NOTICED COOLANT LOSS,RECENTLY?KEEP THE COOLANT LEVELS FULL,CHECK TO SEE FOR ANY LOSS AT ALL! OIL SMOKE IS MORE BLUE THAN WHITE,BUT FUEL CAN HAVE A LIGHT BLUE SMOKE.Antifreez more whitesh with a similar smell of antifreeze.

SOURCE: I have 1999 Mitsubishi Montero
Mitshubishi had a update and one time when a montero sport came in about doing a valve job , The reson I know this I work on a customer that had a blown head gasket and had the machine shop do a valve job, we had a hard time ordering valve stem seal as they were updated from black to brown in color,why was updated at that time,the seal leaked and burned oil,So what does this have to do with yours , not only is your valve stem guide worn,your valve guides cannot seal and you get oil in the combustion chamber,as the oil pan gasket of course it ll will leak there and seep, and your front seal has a weep leak,Here is you 140k miles if you decide to repair it? valve job at both cylinder head, before you commit this have a through evaluation especially with the transmission. by the way Mitsubishi and Dodge caravan from 1996 to 2001 suffer from this.Do you know how I can tell when I am near a montero? the lifter are noisy
