May want to check the throttle cable. Sounds like it is sticking. You can spray sum WD-40 on it that usually helps. The throttle cable is the piece that moves when the gas pedal is pressed. Near the intake on top of engine normally.

My kia sportage diesel is puffing blue smoke.


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.
