Check to make sure the turbo oil return pipe is not clogged. if it is pressure will build up causing oil leak through seal causing it to smoke.

My Volvo s40 2.0 none turbo burns oil and is slower and misfires sometimes hard start when hot what causes this?


Burning oil may be the cause of the rest. Bad PCV system? Worn rings? Bad valve guide seals? Fully describe how and when it burns oil.

Oil line diagram


Hi Geoff, The symptoms you describe certainly point to the turbo. The turbo is basically an air compressor. It is operated by spinning a turbine with the hot exhaust gas which is joined to an impeller via a shaft. The shaft runs on a special floating bearing which is lubricated with pressurised engine oil. There are two special oil seals sealing that central shaft section from the impeller and turbine chambers. If either is leaking, oil will leak into the combustion chambers and result in excessive smoke. I do not know if repair kits are available where you reside, they are not available here and special seals are required. You may need to replace the unit with a reconditioned or a new replacement. Regards John

2001 Volvo s40 oil leaking in turbo, smokes white smoke and turbo not kicking in. I have a new head, timing belt waterpump, oxygen sens. valve job, cam pulley all changed. It is still smoking and no turbo....


Water in combustion chamber makes white smoke--suspect that the head gasket is leaking water into the chamber. If oil leaking around turbo, it may have a bad bearing and bad oil seal. Check waste gate valve and control.

Trowing oil out thru exhaust

Oil Leaking into the exhaust


hi there, there are chemicals on the market that will soften up the seals but these take time to work i would suggest changing the turbo, you will also have to remove the oil from the exhaust system this can be done with other chemicals like an upper cylinder cleaner feed directly in to the air intake but only after the turbo has be fixed

Oil leakage


Without seeing your vehicle I can't say for sure where the oil is leaking from. turbo return line seals are prone to leakage. the seals themselves should be about $20
