little bit of smoke on start up

Post by panic_fan on Fri Mar 01, 2013 12:05 pm

Anyone have any thoughts on this? I am getting blue smoke when I start the bus....sometimes. But only for a few seconds.


If I have been driving and engine is warm. Restart with NO SMOKE.

Drive to work and let sit till lunch...SMOKE.

When parked for a long time (day or so) NO SMOKE on startup !?

Runs well, Embarassed embarrassing when everyone leaves the parking lot at work thru my smoke cloud!
