Check the oil and water first thing. But it does look good if there's blue smoke . there maybe some damage to the engine.

Blue smoke from the exhaust is a sign of oil burning.

" But it does look good if there's blue smoke " ??????

Sounds like you have a problem with the DPF regenerating .Might be better to get a second opinion if your " mechanic " is not able to diagnose this fault .

You may be better going to a diesel specialist in your area for checking and suggested remedies / cost .
