Looks like 1,2 and 3 are faulty, or at least not performing to specifications compared with the one numbered 4.

Once started it is very smokey (White smoke) until it is warm, every now and again it will start as it should but once running it will not rev for about 30 seconds.
Which, to me ties up nicely - 3 faulty injectors.

Solution? Replace or refurbish the injectors, neither particularly cheap. Have a look here for Refurbished injectors for the C3, here for some pictures on 16v C3 injector removal and here for C3 injector testing (and repair) service - on ebay.
