I'm thinking it might also help if i video the startup and engine running and post a link to it also I'm new to this forum, so not sure on upload limits etc.

Right guys here's a video of me doing a cold start ( forgot to take a pic of the engine... I will upload that tomorrow ) . I noticed the smoke wasn't as black as usual which it normally is., perhaps the redex is starting to work? Anyway hopefully you will know a bit more by watching this. I can do more detailed videos if required. I should also do a vid of me driving if i can get a safe way to do this?

*note* I kinda got sidetracked today fitting a new radio/mp3/ player and didn't get around to doing the important stuff like OBD diagnostics and filter changes .....

I look forward to any/all replies

You could try a diesel leak off test in-case you have an injector that is emitting too much fuel causing low power and dripping giving you excess smoke on start up

Looking at some youtube videos there, your idea seems very viable, thanks.
