    Smoking diesels normally mean low compression or shagged turbo.

    How is the oil consumption?

    Oil is fine its not losing any or using a great amount, when the car gets warm it gets lumpy, turbo seems to be kicking in fine and the car is a tad smokey

    ummm well i never realy worked on derv monsters. if the smoke is black and smeels realy rih then its desel thats not been burnt in the engine what can happen before the engine is upto normal running temp. what would explain your 3 min all i can say is try a desel engine cleaner see if that makes any difference if it dont then i would take it to a garage
