    Black Blue Smoke

    well had my astra sri 150 for a year now. still love it to bits. just had a few problems .

    new egr valve fitted, inlet manifold and swirl flaps

    all seemed ok after that but now its started to produce blue black smoke on a cold start, and even when its warm it puffs out a blue black smoke.

    so it looks like a trip back to the dealer to take a look.

    last time it went in there, it was off the road for 4 weeks

    That smoke could be anything, turbo seals, leaky valve seal, etc. Mine's been doing that since I got it at 32k. It's just gone 60k on the clock, and still doing it.

    Unless it's using oil, I wouldn't worry too much about it.
