Question about 2002 Kia Sportage
My kia sportage 2.0 turbo diesel is puffing blue smoke, the engine will excelorate creating a cloud of bule and gray smoke once you touch on the gas pedal while the car is parked and ideling.I would have to turn the engine off and restart for this problem to stop. The car will then work normally. This problem occurs mostly on mornings.How can I fix this?
Nothing to fix friend. See, in diesel, when cold, there is an electric plunger on the throttle that speeds the idle a bit till warm up. Connected to that same wire is the cold start/temperature sensor. When cold/cool this sensor will excite the plunger to speed the idle, and put more fuel into the engine making the smoke you see, until warm up is reached and the sensor shuts down. You really don't have a repair needed friend.

Its too cold ... get a block heater. At least get an under hood heater, even an old electric blanket will work ... just don't forget to remove it before starting the engine.
You also might look into holding the preheaters on longer.
