    I have a 2006 3.0 diesel 225000 miles, when on idle after 5mins starts emitting white smoke really badly, the rest of the times the carruns great plenty power and no smoke.
    I have had it fully serviced oil changed a couple of times aterraclean and a dpf soak which helped a little but still after five minutesidle smoking really badly when I drive the car after that it smokes for 30 secondsthen clears itself.
    Anyone have any idea what this could be or had similar problems.
    Also heard it might be an injector problem.....
    Does anyone have a recommendation for a good garage to diagnose/fix this problem in the Falkirk area ?

    It will be the injectors.
    Keep an eye on the oil level, just in case the injectors are filling the engine full of diesel.
