Dear All,
My C6 had a intermittent smoke leak from engine compartment. Smoke is from engine exhaust due to smell and colour and is noticeable when running due smell and with car stooped if no wind it can be seen.

Conditions are car engine warmed up after auto Ban driving.

When car is stooped and engine idling you listen to a click and after the engine start to leak smoke from right side. I forced already EGR on and off and is not from EGR.

Any Ideas ? as this car have also an A by-pass device for the exhaust gas recycling (EGR) exchanger, with a flap controlled by a pneumatic actuator.

Warm Regards to All

Joao

I had a similar problem. It was diesel fumes from a leaking connection on the high-pressure side.

I had a smoking engine last month. Not the same as yours I don't think as it was accompanied by the engine chuffing like a train. It turned out to be a copper washer on one of the injectors perforating.

It was close to the injectors, between injectors and the HP pump

I also had a leak a few years back when working extensively on the (2.7) it was from the Egr connection on the hard to reach rear EGR valve. The bolt/gasket hadn't sealed well enough and exhaust fumes were seen in the engine bay.
