Smoky Chrysler Voyager

I have Chrysler Voyager diesel. When I start it in the morning it produces a lot of smoke. It goes away eventually.

It's not burning its fuel completely. The usual reason in an older diesel like this is that not all the glowplugs are functioning, so when the engine starts the fuel is not being burned in one or two of the cylinders until the engine gets hot and compression ignition takes over.
