I have the same problem. My 2011 Avensis t27 2.0 diesel is more like a white/blue smoke (more white than blue) and it only smokes when i accelerate hard at around 1.5-2.0 RPM. Sometimes it doesn't come smoke at all, but most of the times it does when the engine have to work hard.

I recieved this issue 4 days ago. Went to Toyota dealership and they told me that it's the 5 injector. They are going to replace it for free since i bought it used 1.5 weeks ago. I don't know how much this costs to fix, since Toyota is going to fix this for me and the bill as well. Ure safe to drive the car if this popped up recently, but in the long run it will clog up. So, have it checked out at a Toyota dealership if you don't know what casues the problem. This will save you time and money in the long run instead of ignoring the issue, and the diagnostics takes like 20 minutes and you got your answer.

Pricetag at Toyota is about 5-600+ dollars for the part alone converted from my currency. Injectors are located under the head gasket and is a "complex" work if you never done it before. I've heard that there are ways to clean them, but don't trust my words on this since i have never tried this before myselfe.

Looks something like this

I hope this gives you a guideline atleast. Happy hunting

EDIT: These aren't pictures from my car. Just to give you an idea what they look like.

Utter tosh!

If you think it isn't tosh, provide proof.

Are you some form of expert on fuels and additives?  No, I thought not.

What you say goes for nothing unless you have evidence to back it up.

Have you got evidence?  No, I thought not.

My car runs perfectly after use that my proof

Sorry to wade into the argument, but I take it from Stivino's point of view, that even though Tomm5 has used his method to cure the car cheaply, some components may be affected long term. The modern high pressure fuel and the DPF are what I am talking about. But on the other hand, Tomm5 took the chance and so far the car 'works'! Also there are other components like the EGR and inlet manifold that need cleaning. Hopefully the car has passed the NCT emissions test! Terraclean is doing a similar thing. One thing that can't stop smoke is if the seals/gaskets are failing, especially the turbo seals. 
I think Stivino would like to see a video of the exhaust, with the engine revved.

My model car is newer model 12 plate which doesn't have this 5th injector problem because Toyota solved this on my model this injectors fault is 09 to early 12 older model by way I also use kerosene oil too that seems to do trick too and diptane good motor factors told me that's what taxi man uses

I have known some diesel injection specialists swear by using a little 2 stroke oil added to diesel fuel, but never seen an actual scientific study on its effects. I tried it on a Peugeot HDi engine years ago that was suffering (I think) from a sticking injector, and it made absolutely no difference whatsoever, but who knows it may work for some. I would be reluctant to use it on anything with a DPF however.

I have alleredy added the cemical and drove 200 km, after it had the same problem. Mabye shuold i try the 2 stroke oil. 

I shuold try the 2 stroke oil, if it did not help i guess the injektor has gone bad.

I really think that is the 5th injketor that is blocked, becuose it dosent smoke somtimes.

And yes i did google it, a lot. The only place i fuond, was here.

Thanks

It's most likley the fifth injector mate, but please make 100% sure on a dealership. Or if you know someone that can read error codes on your car, or even better, buy your own error code reader perhaps. I don't know much about Toyotas, but people say it's easy to figure out if it's the injector if you have error code reader. My dealership, when i first got there told me that this kind of smoking can be caused by the turbo as well when it kicks in. In my case it was the injector, and this is an known sickness for 2011 (ish) Toyotas diesel. There are also ways to overhaul or to puchase overhauled injectors at a cheaper price as well. So there are many options that doesn't cost to much money as well. Good luck with the problem you have mate.

I took it to a mechanic I'm friends with. We found 4 codes but they had nothing to do with the 5th injector and no codes about engine.

It's just that it has not smoked for about 4 weeks.
