It is a clear case of the glow plugs malfunction. It had happened with my neighbor who tried to start his diesel focus one day. Even jump starting with another battery didn't solve the starting problem.
You could also check the EGR valve for damages and if you want to save a couple of bucks, then go in for used parts for the focus from Good used Focus Stuff
What happening is you have a bad head gasket or its starting to go bad. As long a little oil is getting in to cylinders causing that smoke once it warms up that gasket is expanding thus the smoke stops. I would keep an eye on oil levels if it gets milky replace gasket asap. Could also be intake gasket but highly doubt it this sounds like a worn head gasket.
Hi Gert, If the smoke is more visible during the period after start up in the mornings, I would suspect the valve stem oil seals have become hardened and defective. The oil seeps in slowly passing the seals from the cylinder head. Sounds as though you need a head job. Regards John
Blue smoke is not a good sign..it usually means that the piston rings are shot, or the engine is old worn and tired. Is the car using more oil than average? if not...and the engine performs o.k and you pass smog... then i"d say dont worry about it too much. But if you start to see blue smoke constantly, it's time to purchase another engine..its cheaper than buying another car.
the white smoke is oil smoke,check your valve stem seals,if they are bad it will smoke till it burns the oil that leaked by when it was sitting.as far as it stalling in the morning check your choke it may need adjusting.
