Turbo damage on 2005 Volkswagen Passat

Our new used car is blowing smoke out the tail pipe. My son says it is the Turbo but the dealer won't fix it until they see the oil change service records. Is a bad Turbo related to oil changes?

Yes, could be related to oil change, using incorrect oil or low oil level. What color is the smoke?

My 2005 gmc canyon just started blowing smoke out tail pipe but it doesnt do it everytime i start it. is this bad?


Possibly a leak in the head gasket. Take out the plugs and see if they are water wet. Run a compression check.

Black smoke from the tail pipe means the engine is not getting any air like a dirty air filter. I think your mechanic is telling you is that you need a new turbo. The turbo boost incoming air pressure to the engine and if it is bad then it will not let enough air into the engine causing black smoke from the tail pipe.

Engine blowing thick smoke from exhaust


It's likely that the bad bearings and resultant oil seepage from the bad turbo caused oil to pool up in the intercooler piping (this is common). With a new turbo in there, you won't have further oil seepage, so the remainder of the oil in the piping should burn off. Over the next little while, you should see the amount of smoke coming out continue to diminish. If it does not, and is still smoking in a week or two, post back up on here and we'll take it from there.
