    Berlingo Diesel problem ???????????

    Serviced my van the weekend (Berlingo diesel 2001 Dw8 engine 42000 miles).Changed oil and filter and also done the gearbox oil .
    Since then i have a intermitant problem . Can be driving along and it will blow white smoke out the exhaust and can hear a very quiet rattle ! It only lasts for a few seconds and its back to normal ...It done this 3 times on a 50 mile journey.........Any ideas ??????????

    Citroen Berlingos have a renowned problem of the swirl chamber dropping out of the heads I hope it isn't this!

    Its a citroen berlingo, theres your problem. I have one as a works van, they're shit lol.

    In all honesty I have no idea, but does white smoke not usually mean coolant? Blue smoke usually being oil?

    check the level ie not to much
    also check the inlet manifold as they get clogged

    Air sucked in with the fuel. Does it struggle or revs drop as it smokes? Check fuel filter is correctly seated and sealed and any water is drained.
