VOLKSWAGEN PASSAT CAMSHAFT PROBLEM

2008 Volkswagen Passat • 120,000 miles

2.0 TDI 170BHP
I have excessive white smoke from exhaust on idle whether at start or in standing trafiic/lights. This is stinging on the eyes.
EGR has been checked and is ok. Injectors are ok - no misfiring.
I also get a whirring/whistling sound from engine area on acceleration

Please advise

If not leaky injector. Worn camshaft lobes?

Check for fuel /diesel in oil.
