It's possible; however, the best way to find a leak is to get under the vehicle when it has not been run for sometime, (engine cold); and wipe everything down that is wet with oil (or fluid). With vehicle level, start engine and let run until at operating temperature. Shut off, raise vehicle, and watch to see where the leak is coming out of. If you cannot see anything, you may want to have a mechanic with a vehicle hoist take a look to determine where the leak is at.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

well the question is where did the coolant go. if it didnt leak out it must have went out the pipe. As you stated, white smoke, white smoke is coolant. You definately need to get this to the shop. You cannot drive it this way or further damage will occur.

Diesel 6.0 running very bad and getting too hot


What you have described is a classic turbo air leak. Check the clamps & air lines from the turbo to the intake. If you do not find an air leak (you should be able to hear the air escaping) it will be a turbo problem. Unlike gasoline engines too much fuel in proportion to the air will cause the vehicle to run hot and also to smoke.

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.

2001 Volvo S40 1.9T - oil leaking into turbo


It's very common for the turbo return line seal to leak. That is what I would check first, when it leaks, it will spray oil all over the turbo lines and the rear of the engine.

1993 mitsubishi pajero exceed-intercooler turbo 2800 diesel engine 4m40


Hi, I have a Pajero 2800 Turbo 1995 Auto. It has developed a bad oil leak somewhere around the front right hand side (from the front) where there seems to be oil spraying over the pipes, etc. Can't see it happening with the engine running and have cleaned the engine off but still can't see where it comes from. It has emptied the sump! Any ideas?
Cheers,
Rob.
