Question about 2003 Renault Sportwagon
My caris a citreon asxo 1.1 it struggles to fire up and when it finally does alot of light coloured smoke emmitts
White smoke is water, suggesting a leaking head gasket or cracked head. Bluish smoke is oil which is usually found in high mileage engines. Engine wear increases the tolerances and allows oil to pass by the rings into the combustion chamber. Broken piston rings could also allow this to happen. There is also a possibility that leaking valves could be the source, if they are not seating properly.
All of these could create a hard start problem, and should be looked at soon because they will keep getting worse. Hope this helps.
