Van recently bought, it smokes blue/grey after I start it is more blue, when warmer it smoke less but still does and the smoke is more grey, after pressing acceretion pedal it smokes a bit more for short time and then slow dawn, there is no power loss, also I've checked turbo, can't feel any movement on turbo shaft, altough there is some oil in outlet pipe ( this one going to intercooler ) also replaced oil separator ( old had holes in pipes ) any idea what else can check before I go to mechanic and spend a lot of money?

Best thing you can do is change the oil, filter and air filter

what year and mileage ? is the tax £30 or £90 a year ?

Blue smoke usually means oil.
You put the recommended oil in it?

any idea when the fuel filter was changed ? a small amount of oil in the intake is normal - but not dripping wet

How much is road tax ? (this tells me what engine tune it has)

Carefully remove the oil filler cap with the engine idling. If there's air chuffing out then you could have either blocked breather issues or knackered piston rings.

You could remove the intercooler and tip it up and flush it out with brake/carb clean as it might have collected a rake of oil from turbo oil seal leakage.
