Sounds like reduced back pressure, and maybe a leak...

there is detail missing here that is essential for a solution
what engine is it , v or straight, no of cylinders
what work has been done prior to the problem
what ,make and model, year of vehicle
you have changed spark plugs so assuming it is a v8 I would be rechecking the firing order of the HT leads ( 2 cylinders crossed )
They will start and idle ok but backfire under load

Oil pipe from the turbo going down to sump is leaking.how do i get at.


You have not said what vehicle this is for. Most oil drain pipes leak from the flexible joiner near the sump. Best to look under the vehicle to see how you can get access to the clamps that hold this tube on and tighten them.

6D40 Fuso engine oil coming out from exhaust pipe after overhauling


You missed a seal on the turbo. Or the turbo is bad. Everything else you did would only make it smoke bad if you missed something.

Where does one investigate oil consumption in a 1.8 liter turbo engine in a 2001 vw golf using 1-quart every 50 to 100 miles driven, no tail pipe smoke and no leakes on drive way when parked overnight. I...


If you don't drive this little beast hard the oil could be migrating to the charge pipes and inter cooler.

Usually the turbo is likely culprit when oil consumption reaches those levels. Pull the spark plugs to see if the tips are loading up with carbon deposits.

You can pull the lower hose of the inter cooler...drivers side under the bumper....and see if oil pours out. If so the turbo is shot.

Another way oil is consumed is valve stem seals allowing oil down the intake valve guides. Cure is a set of valve stem seals.

Exhaust giving off white smoke when parked up with engine running audi a4


White smoke is caused by engine oil being burnt. If your vehicle is turbo charged then it is most likely the turbo bushes that are worn, allowing oil to escape into the exhaust system. This can also be caused by worn piston rings but is unlikely on a vehicle of this age unless it has overheated badly in the past. To check turbo, remove main intake pipe from turbo. Check for excessive movement on impeller shaft in turbo by moving it up and down. To check piston rings carry out a compression test or if you have the equipment a cylinder leakage test will give you a better indication of cylinder condition. If the Turbo is at fault it will need to be reconditioned or replaced. Check oil feed pipe to turbo for blockage or restriction [common fault].

1999 Vauxhall Frontera 2.2 dth ltd. Living in France


take the inter cooler pipe of turbo and try to move the fan or bolt inside the turbo, if you can then theres a problem with the bearing probably oil starvation parts of the fan will have been sucked through the engine so this could cause the smoke problem if the plastic is stuck in the exhaust valve check all oil lines and air lines, try getting some one to hold rag over exhaust pipe and look in engine bay if you can see smoke/exhaust gases coming from turbo unit then theres a leak somewhere,
its a complicated problem and without being there i cant really help anymore than that, sorry jezza
