You "a" have a bad turbo,"b" left over oil burning off,& "c" a bad turbo for the whistleling. could be a bad blow off valve but not likely.

White exhaust smoke when it's warm and go's away on high speed when idling it come's back? can it be the turbo seals/


turbo seals usually burn oil when they go bad. white smoke indicates the motor is burning coolant. could be a head gasket. it will have to be checked out to know for sure.

Hi der,lost the turbo in my skoda first,den it started pumping out smoke after a wile,would it be da cat blocked by any chance??


No Chance at all, Its oil leaking into turbo from seal, Burned da tubo Eh. To check, remove turbo and start, loud as all hell but no smoke and you have found the problem, If not check piston rings, valves. ie check compression and check vacuum with gauge.

My 04 VW Jetta blew thick white smoke from tailpipe after freeway drive. No indicator lights came on, all oil leaked out (after smoke started)... is this engine or could it be just the turbos? Right...


A new turbo charger is about $340, but you can buy the bearings and seals and rebuilt if yourself for about $100

It is not hard, and it does not take long to do.

I normally do not bother with synthetic, but with a turbo charger, it might be worth it. What really seems to ruin turbo chargers the most is not letting them cool off before parking.
Once you turn off the engine, there is no longer any cooling, so the build up heat will burn up the oil and seals.
Run the engine for at least 5 minutes below turbo levels, before shutting down the engine.

Blue Smoke and Oil Level droping


normally blue smoke is burning oil and if this is the case you may have a valve stem oil seal which is leaking these prevent oil getting into the top of the bore via the valves. if it does you grt the oil burning on start up givivg blue smoke and to fix these you may have to remove the cylinder hesd i work on lorries and classic cars and some you can get away with leaving the head on but have never worked on a bmw

Oil coming out of exhaust and whistling turbo


it sounds like your turbo has packed in firstly the oil seal in your turbo has failed thats why ur seeing oil from exhaust & the whistling from turbo is the vanes in turbo breaking up so i would advise not to use car until new turbo is fitted & inter cooler pipes and inter cooler itself are checked & cleaned for swarf from turbo you can check turbo by disconnecting turbo pipe &inspecting turbo vanes (fins) to see if broken up or any damage to chamber.
