    It may be depending on the mileage and the engine condition. On diesels this could be a few things, but it probably just has a little valve seal leakage.

  5. wildmanny2 says:

    Yes it’s normal The white smoke you see and smell is fuel that is unburned because the engine is not warm enough to run properly yet.

  6. joel95ex says:

    if it only does it after sitting, it is the valve seals allowing oil to leak into the cylinder slowly and when you start it, it burns it off……white smoke is oil .

  7. boogie_4wheel says:

    Some white smoke during startup is normal. The cylinder tepmerature is too cold for an efficient burn of fuel. The white smoke will be more noticable during colder outside temperatures.
