The turbo has oil seals in it that can just leak a little oil at first and then for no reson they just blow out and the oil presher pumps engine oil into the engine inlet manyfold what happens then is you loos all the engine power and it smokes like mad,,, sounds like a new turbo needed,,,,

White smoke from exhaust


The white smoke you are seeing is steam. From your description, sounds like you have coolent seeping into the combustion chamber, mixing with your fuel/air, and exiting out through your exhaust as steam. 1, blown head gasket. 2. cracked head or block, 3, warped head due to overheating. Most common is #1.

Exhaust smoke definitely not steam. Someone opined that it may be related to the turbo/exhaust system. What do you think?


A worn turbo or broken would create smoke. Blue or Gray smoke is either worn rings or a clogged PCV. White smoke is from foreign fluid entering the engine. Typically indicative of a head gasket leak. Black smoke is Leaking injectors or an ignition problem or an issue with the turbo.
If you are experiencing a loss in power then you most likely have a worn turbo bearing.

Suddenly lose turbo power black smoke comes out exhaust


Turbo is bad, when you start seeing black exhaust turbo has gone out completely. Depending on how old the turbo is and how hard it is driven, how many miles and so forth.

I have a 2000 beetle 1.8 turbo the turbo makes a noise after 3000rph and alot of white smoke starts to come out from exhaust.


This sounds like you have a seal that is failing under the stress of high engine and turbo rotor rpm's, the white smoke is oil burning, either in the exhaust stream or it's oil getting into the intake stream and being burned with the fuel..
You can remove the turbo yourself but you may not be able to locate the issue.
I would advise that you take the vehicle into a turbocharger specialist..

F250 Lariat Diesel turbo no function sometimes and exhaust smoke white


you didnt specify if this is a 6L or 6.4L since its an 07 it could be either. If 6.0L, White smoke typically indicates a blown egr cooler and this usually damages the egr valve which may cause it to fail open allowing the coolant to enter the combustion chambers and be burnt and cause white smoke, If its a 6.4L I have seen the highside turbo bearings fail causing poor performance and seal failure resulting in oil getting into exhaust, high exhaust temps make it burn and it may appear as a whitish colored smoke depending on severity. Hopefully for you its a 6.0L becuase the 6.4L turbo r&r is a repair where we remove the entire cab from the truck. However your not much better off with 6.0L since egr cooler/oil cooler job can easily run you $1500-2000.

Blue smoke out of exhaust, replaced turbo, still smokes a lot when engine revs


have you driven it at least 100 miles since repair?, the oil residue builds up inside the exhaust and burns off very slowly from the previous failed turbo seal.

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.
