Ok, this is buggin the s**t outta me and i cant work it out. When i do a cold start the engine idle is really rough and if i rev it for approx. 5sec it idles normally but today it done the same thing and blew a whole heap of white smoke. I fanged er round the block and the white smoke stopped, my boss reckons its just condensation but i can justify that for this ammount of smoke.

I have changed the oil and fuel filter 2 days ago. maybe this will having something to do with something.
