Question about 2001 Volkswagen Passat
Recently replaced turbo charger as bearings had gone and engine was blowing out thick smoke. It is still blowing out smoke although not as bad.
Any ideas what it could be.
It's likely that the bad bearings and resultant oil seepage from the bad turbo caused oil to pool up in the intercooler piping (this is common). With a new turbo in there, you won't have further oil seepage, so the remainder of the oil in the piping should burn off. Over the next little while, you should see the amount of smoke coming out continue to diminish. If it does not, and is still smoking in a week or two, post back up on here and we'll take it from there.
