Hi, im looking at a renault espace 1.9 turbo diesel, when sitting at idle clouds of white smoke appear from the exhaust, give it a rev and it clears. Engine runs and pulls fine? I have had the EGR valve out and cleaned it, the intercooler pipes where lined with oil and the inlet manifold had a lot of gunk in it.

White smoke on a diesel can indicate incomplete combustion due to a low compression, does the smoke smell like raw diesel and dose it tend to sting the eyes?
