    I already have everything ready!!!
    I though the pcv would last a bit longuer maybe 8 to 10 k....??!!
    So I guess is every oil change then (usually i do it every 6 k)
    Many Thanks

    Worth cleaning out the inlet manifold and egr if fitted when you service it. These can introduce smoke if clogged up.
