Just wondering if anyone has noticed any smoke comming out of the back end when car is cold, (puff of bluey smoke only on thr first accelaration).
My car is a XR6T with aps 2 and 15000k on the clock.
Mate of mine had the same problem with a new Saab turbo, had it fixed yesterday , problem was due to the accelerator not being set right, think he said it was because they stretch or whatever, anyway dealer fixed it ok.
Notice that he says its when its cold- everything blows oil smoke when its cold, whether you can see it or not. This is because the pistons and rings have not expanded in the cylinders to make the ideal seal yet. If its not there when its hot- i wouldn't really worry...on the other hand, if its a fair cloud of smoke, you could be in a bit of trouble.
