several things can cause smoke

tdci's are fuel sensitive so supermarket fuel will smoke more than a branded fuel - try some injector cleaner. if the egr valve is gunked up this will also cause smoke, if there is a loss of power or miss fire check for a split turbo hose. any of these will cause smoke, without seeing the car its hard to say what the problem is. i presume its black smoke we are talking about.

Sorry bout late reply, just had clutch done. As far as i can see in rear view its black so will try cleaning egr, but in what? Is it ok to use injector cleaner the hand book says no or is ford just talking crap.
