Hi all Volvo V40 owners,
I have a problam with my car and I just wondered if anyone else has had
this problam ,
when I turn the ignition on the cars starts and the i rev it up to two thousand
revs ( to get the choke off ) then I went round the back of the car to see
if any lights had gone and I realised a big puff of smoke was coming out of the
back of it ( the smoke cloud just about filled the street with smoke ,
( the street only has 18 houses on it )
so please email me if you have more enquries on
[email protected]
thank you
Alex Howarth

I just started having this problem. Large amount of light/blue smoke coming out of my exhaust while I am accelerating. No water in oil, or oil in radiator overflow. I also have a strong fuel smell coming from exhaust. Any thoughts on what this might be?

ECU and ECM(Engine Control Module) are both the same things.
I forget exactly what was replaced and looked at lets try again.
Things that could flood it out and let it not start.
O2 sensor
Mass flow sensor
Coolant temp sensor
Bleeding down lifters
Bad coils
Bad fuel pressure regulator
Leaking fuel injectors
