    Smoking Zlet issues...

    My car has been off the road for about a year and the engine not run for a year, it has been used for about 30 miles a month or so ago...

    just had a little play and we have some slight smoking issues...

    It does NOT smoke when cold nor when revving...

    only when warm and at idle???

    And also there is smoke leaking out between the turbo and the manifold?

    Anyone have any ideas...

    I was going to say the white smoke out of the exhaust could be condensation from being stood up for so long but there seems to be loads of it.
    Take your var for a good 30 mile blast to see if things improve.
    May be new headgasket time
