SOURCE: large amount of white smoke on first start of the day

Have you had the injector recall check carried out? There is a problem with these injectors and this produces the symptoms you are describing. I suggest that you contact Isuzu direct for help. They have been very helpful in the case of my trooper

SOURCE: white smoke from the exhaust when I start the car

Hi!

What type of smoke can you see---

white smoke-
If you see a wispy, lingering white smoke that has a bittersweet smell, this is an indication that your car's engine coolant is leaking into the combustion chambers. This may be due to a leaky head gasket, or in a worst case scenario, a cracked cylinder head.

Make sure to take your car to the shop right away to get it fixed.
Thick white smoke---
If your vehicle is belching white smoke upon start-up, it is a sign that transmission fluid is entering the combustion chambers, possibly though a vacuum tube that connects the engine to the transmission.
This type of smoke can be confused with the normal puff of steam during start-up. If you are not sure, have your car inspected at the shop.

Blue/White Smoke--
A blue/white smoke is an indication that oil is being sucked into the combustion chambers through the valve guides. A quick fix for this problem is by replacing the valve seals. Valve seals are small, umbrella shaped pieces of rubber.

Do rate the solution.

Thanks
Rylee.

Hi!
Excellent description of your problem, I wish more were as articulate.
I thought at first it could be a glowplug fault but if you are experiencing problems when warm and noise from crank then it possibly is related to fuel.
You are either getting too much or not enough? have you replaced your fuel filter recently? also I hope inadvertently a mix of Petrol/gasoline hasn't taken place? finally your injectors seem to me to be the root of the problem.
O'k if it were me I would change fuel filter, also during this process I would purchase a fuel system cleaner, not one you mix in the tank but one where you fill the fuel filter.
Try it if a slight improvement you may need to do it again, if sorted use a fuel conditioner/cleaner in the tank regularly to maintain fuel efficiency.
I hope the information supplied FREE! sorts your problem? press the blue button please to rate my Efforts.
Thank You!

warm up the engine and turn it off then try to turn the crankshaft pulley with a suitable wrench. if its too hard to turn by hand then the bearings might be too tight.

SOURCE: hard starting diesel

only 2 things can maake a diesel run rough at start up ,,1--- air in the system 2----- 1 or more of the glow plugs not working. this sounds like the latter ,if you have a couple of glow plugs not working ,it will miss on those cylinders until it warms up ,and the smoke is mostll exesive fuel when it does fire . recommend you check the glow plugs

When pulling away in my ford fiesta its doesnt want to go


Do you have any preventative maintenance done a couple
times a year or any testing done or just wait until it doesn't
run correctly,that is your problem with the car.

You can't start a car & drive away 30 seconds later

It runs off the computer until warmed up & you have very little
fuel control when cold

This being a diesel, lack of compression is your worst enemy. These symptoms sound like a blown head gasket. Check your coolant for signs of oil, and check your oil for signs of coolant. (oil will be milky looking) Also indicative of a head gasket problem is an oil or coolant leak from the engine as well. If you see no evidence of the above, have a compression test done, and it should show up.

Pajero diesel when starting from cold, runs for two & half mins then cuts out, when warm starts normal


It's definitely your injection pump seals mate.....common prob with these engines. My 1994 2.8TD was exactly the same until I had the sealls replaced. I went for the complete reconditioning and not just the main seal and it cost me £519 in total. Dunks

For a short term solution, you could run a small electric heater within the engine compartment which will keep everything nice and warm for your early morning starts.
I remember my father using an extension trouble light and leaving it under the engine compartment during the winters.
