You have coolant in your oil unfortunely it's a blown head gasket not an easy fix definitely something you would want a shop to do & depending on the condition of the car it might not even be worth the repair sry for the bad news
Actually is sounds more like a blown head gasket or intake gasket. The white smoke is probably water.. and my guess is your coolant reservoir tank is dry or soon will be.. and the next thing will be overheating. The water is getting into the combustion cycle and turning to steam as it blows out the exhaust. Hence white "smoke"..
The loss of compression due to the gasket leak on one or more cylinders would account for the loss of power as well.
I was not aware this model came with turbocharger.. unless an aftermarket one was added.
A good shop will do a compression check and identify if it's the head or intake gasket.
probably a blown head gasket or warped head from severe overheating. "worth it?" how much work are you willing to do?if you pull the head and its not too warped a machine shop may be able to plain the head and get if flat again there are tolerances to consider (valve clearance/ max amount that can be removed from head) or if the block was affected it may be a lost cause if you shave down one head you should do the same on the other head as well. hope this helps
You just take the head off, and not tear down the whole engine. Do not have to remove from car. But make sure water did not get run in the oil so long that the bottom end of the engine is also bad. Drain coolant. Set engine to TDC of cylinder #1 because you have to remove camshaft and timing belt. Start at the top cam cover, and work your way down to the head, removing anything attached to the head, like exhaust, intake manifold, etc. When you have the head off, take it to shop to check for wharpage. Remove any excess carbon from piston tops. Scrape and buff top of block until clean. Replace head and reverse order on everything else. Also remember to replace thermostat.
With break-down, testing the head and block for cracks, resurfacing, new head bolts, all new gaskets, and labor, the price gets up there. Obviously, the labor is the major part of the cost. The only way to do this cheaper is if you have somebody that knows what they are doing take a serious hit on labor, or if you do it yourself. Obviously, most people do not have the necessary tools to do a thorough job, but it can be done if you are willing to take the gamble that the head and block are in good condition.
I think $1300 is a reasonable price if they back their work.
fuel and spark are great but are you getting air? sounds to me if u did a head job possible that cam sensor could be the issue or possible mass air as well i would check those compnents but also check basic starting compnents as well plugs wires ignition start batter connectors and air
