ive been looking on a few forums now and although ive found this problem a few times there has never been a solution,

basicly the engine will run fine then all of a sudden it will bellow out blue smoke but its not burning oil the smoke smells like someone has just lit a bbq, when normal driving it will be fine, then just run lump with blue smoke and no power

i have done the following

1) replaced air filter
2) replaced fuel filter
3) replaced glow plugs
4) replaced a fuel line that had perished

i am now stuck for what to tackle next any help would be great
