    MAJOR PROBELM ANY ADVICE PLEASE

    Valve stem seals? Or injector seals? Only takes a small amount of oil to seep into the cylinders when not running for it to produce a cloud at startup. This wouldn't be noticeable when running as the cylinder pressure would force any leaks out rather than in, seen similar things happen on a couple cars that ran really poor or 'home brew' fuels that eat away at the seals.

    Ok, that definitely looks like water vapour rather than anything else, have you noticed the header water level dropping over a period time?

    EGR cooler is on back of engine, top right if its the bkd, little pita to get to, ideally need on a ramp to unbolt it all & thats a fair bit of smoke, cant work out that metallic noise, but egr cooler is a known one & if its using coolant that you notice then must be leaking somewhere & obviously that smoke denotes it, need to research egr mate & also head.

    I have a similar issue myself but only 1st thing starting, it goes within few seconds & its non existent on warm mornings, I still have to check my systems, just havnt had time, I suspect gasket, head or egr atm as my coolant usage is tiny but noticeable.

    I did mention that previously, but the smoke from the rear seems too white for it too be burning oil or excessive fuel. Your best bet is to get a compression test done & see if that shows anything irregular.
