Diesel cold start problem

Post by andyturner » 30 Nov 2001, 18:07

When I try to start my Xantia 1.9TD 1995 from cold it is reluctant to start and give off a lot of unburned diesel white smoke. Heaters are new and drawing correct current for correct length of time. Problem has been around since at least 12000 miles. Any ideas?
