Sound like your valve seals are goin. I wouldn't worry about it until it starts smoking alot more and burning alot of oil.

3.0 litre V6 turbo diesel Mercedes. 115,000 miles. When it is left on tickover for 10 to 15 mins starts to smoke white/grey smoke from exhausts. After a few minutes of normal driving the smoke stops.


Possible cause is several drops of oil are leaking past the valve guide seals when the vehicle just sits. When it is started the oil begins to burn off in the cylinders and after awhile the smoke disappears. I have always recommended cha going the oil to a synthetic and adding an oil additive called Restore. It comes in a cylindrical can in 4, 6 or 8 cylinder size. Put 1 can in with the new oil. Drive the vehicle on the highway for 45 - 60 minutes. I recommend putting on a few hundred Mrs. The additive restores the valve seals preventing the oil from dripping into the cylinders. Have used it on my customers vehicles for 20 years. Saved them a lot of money from replacing the seals.

Afraid you probably have engine issues. White smoke was water. clanking could have been apex seals. You need to have a compression test done.

Black smoke from the tail pipe means the engine is not getting any air like a dirty air filter. I think your mechanic is telling you is that you need a new turbo. The turbo boost incoming air pressure to the engine and if it is bad then it will not let enough air into the engine causing black smoke from the tail pipe.

Hi Maria,

Does the white smoke occur at start up then go away?
Was it cooler out the night before the white smoke started?

Likely it's condensation burning off.

To be on the safe side have a compression test run on all cylinders. It's a quick, easy and cheap way to find out if the head gasket is ok.

Also, I strongly advise you to get some second or third opinions for the remaining symptoms. Something smells fishy. I'm sure you know what I mean.

If you comment back or repost, I will do my best to help you out.

Best regards
Mike

Loss of power and acceleration on Mazda 6 Turbo diesel 2003


I'm assuming that that smoke was more previlant while going uphill because that's when the turbo would be really spolling up to max psi. I would guess that if you really got on the gas hard and got the turbo going even on a flat surface, that you would notice the smoke too. The loss of power and the white/grey smoke are tell tale signs that your turbo is bad or starting to fail. Good luck!

White smoke from exhaust


White smoke from exhaust = water into the cylinders, when this happens it usually means head gasket gone or starting to go.
Check the water level, and take the car to the garage for a check up , if it is the head gasket, as I think, you risk to blow the engine at any time.
