Typically if a motor is "dusted" will it smoke in hot temps (85-95)? I get alot of smoke in cold temps on a cold start,but I also get smoke on a cold start in warm temps.Not as much as it does in the cold,but it still smokes.In warm temps once the motor is warm it won't smoke at all when driving unless it sits for an hour or so and I start it back up it will smoke for a minute or two.I read in another thread that if a motor is dusted it will smoke all the time.BTW it is a blueish/grey smoke.

Not really sure on this one but i know when i have it plugged in for an hour when its 15 degrees out and i go to start it, it misses a little for about a minute maybe two and lightly smokes a blueish white color while its missing and when it smooths out you can barely see smoke in the air but its not really smoking at that point, Not sure what that means :shrug: .

I would say even if it is hot outside like you were saying if there is bad glow plugs or a bad relay you would see a little smoke but not much and not for long. That would be my guess.

Someone with more knowledge on this topic will chime in soon

My motor's a little low on compression in 2 cylinders (not bad enough to do anything about it yet). If I free-rev a little (~1200-1500) I see a light blueish haze out of my tail-pipe. Only way to know for sure is a compression test.
