Good evening,

I am new to the forum
I have a Nissan Juke 1.5DCi 2013. On cold start up (Has to be left for around 7-8 hours) any other time is fine.
I get some white smoke for a couple of seconds and quite a rough idle, after about 15 seconds or so the idle sorts itself out.

The car does a lot of short journeys. Does this sound like a blocked DPF?? Just filled it up and put some system cleaner in but not sure if that is any use!

Any advise would be great

Thanks

Adam

I would say it probably needs a proper regeneration..if you're doing short journeys the soot in your dpf filter will build up..I have used dpf cleaners but you can't beat a proper regen...the car is supposed to do one every so often it's self and they do say take it for a long run down motorway..I tried these and it seemed to be ok for a few days but soon came bk...so I bought a gadget off Amazon you can do your own forced regeration..mine is so much better now..if you are confident you could try this..or pay a garage to do it..good luck
