Hi all, just joined the forums. Owned a Focus of some description for nearly 10 years now but struggling with my new purchase. It's a 2008 2.0 TDCi.

Does anybody know potential causes of the following symptoms?

  • Excessive cranking when starting cold
  • Large amount of light blue smoke for around 20-30 seconds after starting
  • Rough idle which clears after 2 minutes
So far I have had the below work carried out:

  • New heater plugs
  • New injectors
  • Battery tested
  • Full service including fuel filter
The DPF was removed and the car remapped by a former owner, but I can't see this causing these issues. Any ideas? The above work has killed my wallet!
