Hello all.

Wonder if anyone has experienced blue smoke coming from behind the front passenger side wheel?

This occurs when I stop the car, and it is as if the car is expelling the smoke from somewhere.

Only happened a few times but I am getting a little concerned about it now.

I have a 55 plate 2.5TDI SE.

Cheers.

This is the auxiliary heater.
it is perfectly normal.nothing to worry about,all diesel tregs have it.
You wil notice it more on cold days or after short trips.
Use the search facility above...put in "auxiliary heater".......
and all will be revealed.

Thanks very much for that, I was a little concerned when I searched the forum and found things like "head gasket" and "new engine"


Mind at rest!!
