Hi, i have a 2006 1.3 multijet diesel doblo. Over a pretty short period it starting running roughly and bellowing loads of white smoke out the exhaust. I took it to a diesel injection specialist for the injectors checking, the injectors have tested ok . Any ideas what i could be looking at ??

Coolant getting into the pots?
Had this one before and the head gasket looked OK but the new gasket worked a treat. I was lucky because one of the caps on my eezi-bleed kit fit the expansion tank so I could put a bit of pressure into the tank - which pushed coolant out.

As above, sounds like it might be the turbo seals. Unless the car has been run hot there should be nothing wrong with the head.

Pump and injector problems would usually give bad starting too.

cant see how glow plugs would cause this, they only operate for few seconds at start up
