    Astra MK4 Exhaust Smoke

    Hiya,

    I have a 2000 Astra MK4 and there seems to be a lot of smoke coming out of exhaust. I know this will definitely fail its MOT on emissions.

    Any of you guys know what could be wrong?

    Thanks Ishaaq

    does it normally through out white smoke on a cold start? then does the smoke normally go away as the engine gets warmer?

    if so, thats normal
    Observe the masses and do the opposite
