  2. White smoke on start up help please?

    Abit of an update thats just come to my mind when i first got the car i took it to my local MOT station and asked my mate that works there to plug it in to the snap on kit to see if there is any hidden stored codes he did a scan and if i remember rightly all 6 glow plug come up can't remember what the faults where but i have been reading this could probably be the glow plug relay .... so would this cause this smoke having a faulty glow plug relay also if the glow plugs are not up to scratch? thanks

  7. White smoke on start up help please?

    It’s starts perfect from cold or hot doesn’t matter these videos was done from cold I give no throttle at all but I have revved it on a cold engine obviously which I shouldn’t do but to be fair I’m probably being over cautious but I think it’s due a really good service because the previous owner said it just had a full service before I had it but this is what I found in the airbox when I took it off to look ... il upload now so go back on my YouTube it will be there Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. Hi there I’m new to the 5 series owners I’ve got a 530D on 53/04 plate when I start it I get white smoke when I give it some revs it’s quite bad once been for a drive it clears ... I’ve got no hunting or anything like that I’ve posted it on the Bmw forums on Facebook and few people say turbo etc I know turbo is fine boost fine etc... people also said CCV I land to check it was to start the car and remove the oil cap and if it comes easy it’s fine if it’s sucked down and a night mare to come off then it’s that so I did that and it came off really easy ..? I have videos but don’t know how to attach them .... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
