Hi guys new to the forum

I am driving a 2012 i30 that has been in the family for a while.
Has 270000 odd k on it. Its been blowing heaps of smoke for a while wondering what could be as a few people have looked and unsure. It also takes a bit to clank. My family has heaps of trouble not getting going at all, i work the throttle a bit and that seems to help.

It also just started not reeving over 3000 rpm but i think i might have figured that one out from others issues on this forum.

Any help would be fantastic as I'm driving sod distance and have the option to take my brothers instead.

Also it still is getting fantastic fuel economy.

If its white smoke at startup, and long crank, sure sign of dead glow plugs.
