Ford Fiesta 1.4l TDCI Diesel

Hi Wondering if anyone can assist.

I Have the above vehicle with only 94000 miles on clock. However i have been having some issues recently. The car emits a blue/ greyish smoke from the exhaust!

i have taken it to ford to check the issue they advised that my injectors needed cleaning and i need a system regeneration which since i have had this done. The car ran fine for a good 3 months and then the smoke appreared even more. 

I noticed the car starts to smoke once the engine fan comes on! I have since taken my car to multiple garages who have checked things like coolant and injectors etc but everything seems fine.

Can anyone advise what the issue might be as i am stuck with this car for a further 2 years 😩

Sounds like you're having DPF issues.  Do you mostly cover short journeys on a cold engine? 

Yes i had the oil and filter changed in addition to a system regeneration and an injector clean as recommended by ford it was alright for 3 months the started up again could this have something to do with the turbo? Or should i try again with but drive longer journeys?

i have noticed its fine driving up to about 20mph but as soon as the engine fan comes on massive amounts of smoke come out exhaust

The fan is coming on because it's trying to do a DPF regen.  This is also where the smoke comes from.  You can try  taking it for a longer drive but it sounds like it might be too far gone for that and need another forced regen by a garage.

Ultimately if you mainly do short runs, a DPF equipped car is not for you.
