1998 Renault Espace 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 130k miles

My renault espace deisel. When starting smokes (blue white)and misses for 20 minutes, and then goes perfectly all day.
Have checked the EGR valve and no problem there.
Checked the cylinder head and ok.
Looks like the automatic choke is stikking, but I dont think this has one?
would be gratefull if anybody had any ideas what could be wrong with it.

Do you

Check fuel pressure. Add a good fuel cleaner to the tank to clean the lines and injectors and replace the fuel filter. Does the MIL show on the dash display !
