So.... My car is a FR CR 170 Diesel - has 66k miles on her. For the last 4 days now after 30mins of driving she’s started to smoke, BUT it doesn’t constantly smoke, she’ll start to smoke for a little then stop. And she stinks of strong chemicals, not the normal diesel smell. It’s only today that I’ve managed to get out and video it, but due to only being able to upload pictures there’s a few I’ve added. I first thought the smoke was white and something to do with the head gasket, due to the coolant going down a little but NOW... It looks like she has some Blue in the smoke? Am I trippin?

Advice please, she’s my baby! 🥺💔

If it's head gasket there are coolant and oil chanels there so I guess you could get both into the cylinders

Do you do lots of short trips? That will fill the DPF up.
Get a bottle of DPF cleaner like this. A good 30-60 minutes on the motorway should be enough to regen, so long as it's not too far gone.

If that doesn't work then could be Turbo, EGR, head gasket, oil cooler, etc etc.

I’ve took it up the motorway this morning for well over a hour doing between 60-70 straight. Should be fine now. Engine management light isn’t on and I’m not TOO concerned anymore because I’ve done some research and had 2 mechanics say it’s the car just trying to clean itself. It’s only been happening for a couple days so shouldn’t be too far gone if it does end up being anything different. Thanks 😊
