Engine light on, heavy smoke and engine burning smell (Audi 1.8T)

When i drove my Audi 1.8T sport Auto (2001) on motorway, the oil pressure light flashed. so i stopped as soon as possible and waited about an half hour and added the oil. but when i started to drive , the light started to flash again. I sent my car to Mot and service. After the service, the engine light is on and when i started to drive, very heavy smoke and engine burning smell appeared. what the problem is?

i complained that the engine light , heavy smoke and engine buring smell appeared after service. The garage explained they don't know what caused the problems, but not because of the service. They stripped off my turbo and tried to send out to check but i have to pay, and they can't guarantee to fix the problem.

what should i do? pay to check the turbo? how much it will cost to replace the turbo?

First off, how the Hell did they issue a DOT Cetificate, if the Emissions are known to be off the clock. Without causing stress, do you have, or can obtain the Emission Test Result Print Out from the Testing Station test Equipment. This is something they cannot refuse. DO NOT AUTHORISE ANY REPAIRS Come back TO ME with your story.
Regards,DT

Their must be some oil stored somewhere and it is dripping on your exhaust manifold,but never pressure wash your engine, could cause worse problems,in time the smell will go away,just be patient.It will burn off in time.

My 1998 lincoln continental is smoking burning and through oil.but none of my warning lights are indicating something is wrong what could this be?


Heavy use of engine oil and a nasty smelling smoke usually means the piston rings and cylinder bores are worn out or if you only get smoke on a closed throttle it can point to failed valve stem seals, (cheaper to fix but may point to other wear problems about to show up). The oil pressure warning light is not coming on because the crank shaft and bottom end of the engine are still (possibly) ok.

My 2001 xj cherokee TD blows excessive smoke when the engine is under pressure.


Sounds like a broken oil ring. As far as the engine stalling, if your really low on oil the motor will shut down so as not to damage any bearings and other internal parts. Does the engine seem to be turning over faster and taking longer to start than usual and take a little longer to stop when you turn the engine off. If so you could have an issue with the compression rings in one or more cylinders. Do a compression test. If the #s are near where they should be it's likley oil rings. If the #s are low it's likley the compression rings. Either way if its one of those issues you'll need to overhaul your engine

White SWEET smelling smoke, or white OILY smelling smoke? If it's white thick SWEET smelling smoke, you have a blown head gasket - that's the smell of antifreeze burning in the engine, which it should NEVER do. If it's white OILY smelling smoke (smells a lot like diesel), then you're getting too much fuel into the cylinders.

If it's sweet-smelling smoke (antifreeze), pull the oil dipstick & check the oil level. If the oil level is HIGH and the oil looks like a mocha milkshake, that's absolutely conclusive - that's what happens when antifreeze gets into your oil, and it's nasty corrosive to engine parts.

I'm not at all surprised that the oil light is on if it won't start - you won't get much oil pressure until the engine is running.

the sensors probably sensed the smoke in the exhaust and threw a code. Keep driving it and it should go out once all the oil burns off.

2000 ferrarri 456 gt m-engine code was in history of maf airflow meter left side -ferrari dealer hasswitched from left to right and still has problem. Check engine lite only came on once since driving...


According to what you explain, there is some maf sensor defective or disconnected, the ferrari engine has high compression and forces the fuel to mix with the engine oil, this produces loss of oil pressure.
Check if the oil smells of fuel, check the sensor connections, also check the engine controller

Valve seal leaks will cause an engine to smoke on start until the oil burns off. If a head gasket were leaking it would be smoking constantly.

Oil pressure light went on on my 2000 audi a4 1,8t. What should i do?


could be sender or pump. do not run the engine until you're sure you have a good pump. Does it blink on and off--coming on mainly at idle? This would be normal for an old engine. If it stays on and the pump is bad, you will ruin your engine. You can try replacing the sending uniot, as that is cheap compared to the pump, but don't run it long to check new sender. If new sender stays red, shut down and replace pump.

Audi 1.8T sport Auto (2001) heavy smoke and engine buring smell


The engine could be shot, oil is being burnt off by the actions of being sucked into the bores via worn piston rings then ejected out of the exhaust

If you sent the car in for an MOT and a Service I would ask the garage what they did to it as the car would have failed on its emissions test if that much oil was coming out .

It could have been a fault on the oil pump or lack of oil in the first instance and maybe an overfill on the service

You paid your money now go back for redress
