have the engine code read most auto stores offer this service for free and the code will assist you in correcting your problem ----your problem can be a few different reasons --bad fuel [water]--injector malfunction clogging or flooding--fuel filter--turbo--a sensor --air leak--etc the trouble code will show specifically where to start
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.
If you are getting clouds of white smoke out the exhaust it is a good indicator of antifreeze getting into one or more of the cylinders. I bought a "Great" car sight unseen from a friend once and when he pulled in the drive the whole car disappeared in a cloud of white smoke that only left when he shut the engine off. I found head gasket leaks in half the cylinders. It takes very little coolant to cause the white smoke. If you are absolutely sure of zero coolant loss perhaps the smoke is a little blue--an indication of burning a little oil from a sloppy turbo bearing. Try the nose test-- it may give you the answer. Burning oil has a distinctive smell.
sounds like your turbo let loose. The smoke is the coolant that runs thru the intercooler which cools the turbo. I would say either remove the turbo from the system , or replace it. which engine is in your car? w/o B234R eng; (T25 turbo) [rare] or w/B234R eng (TD04 turbo) Garrett type? (tag72623 Garrett pt# 452083-15)
for a used Turbo you are looking at around $150 plus shipping. but you will need to know which turbo you have of course.
The intercooler is gonna run an additional $50 or so (Hollander part number 317-51291) plus shipping.
give me a zip and tell me which engine (or turbo) you have and I will be happy to get you hooked up with the salvage yard closest to you that has these parts.
