Electrical problem
2000 Other Opel Models 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 150000 miles

My car is opel zafira, 2.0 diesel engine, computerised.
It is difficult to start when it's cold. Its starts after several attempts. It normally happens in the morning and when it has been packed for some hours during the day. A thick grey smoke emits from the exhaust when it starts and stops after moving a few kilometers.
Please, what is wrong with my car?

Do you
have the same problem?
