This turbo faliure is common, the nut that holds the compressor wheel on the inlet side can undo itself and spit the exhaust wheel and shaft out the other side(into the exhaust) It can be cause by running more boost than the turbo can handle or from compressor surge(Thats when you take your foot off the gas and the throttle shuts, the compressed air shoots back the other way back to the turbo trying to escape and causes the compressor wheel to stop and goes the opposite way a blow off valve will reduce this.) Replacing the turbo will fix this problem. i hope this helped.

Exhaust giving off white smoke when parked up with engine running audi a4

White smoke is caused by engine oil being burnt. If your vehicle is turbo charged then it is most likely the turbo bushes that are worn, allowing oil to escape into the exhaust system. This can also be caused by worn piston rings but is unlikely on a vehicle of this age unless it has overheated badly in the past. To check turbo, remove main intake pipe from turbo. Check for excessive movement on impeller shaft in turbo by moving it up and down. To check piston rings carry out a compression test or if you have the equipment a cylinder leakage test will give you a better indication of cylinder condition. If the Turbo is at fault it will need to be reconditioned or replaced. Check oil feed pipe to turbo for blockage or restriction [common fault].

take the inter cooler pipe of turbo and try to move the fan or bolt inside the turbo, if you can then theres a problem with the bearing probably oil starvation parts of the fan will have been sucked through the engine so this could cause the smoke problem if the plastic is stuck in the exhaust valve check all oil lines and air lines, try getting some one to hold rag over exhaust pipe and look in engine bay if you can see smoke/exhaust gases coming from turbo unit then theres a leak somewhere,
its a complicated problem and without being there i cant really help anymore than that, sorry jezza

Hi, I have an BMW X5 56 plate 3.0diesel. 41k miles. I have noticed that there appears to smoke coming from the exhaust upon acceleration. This is happening all of the time. Also, yesterday I lost power (as...

Have a go at the Positive Crankcase Valve (PCV). its located under the engine cover towards the rear of the engine in an odd shaped black plastic box alongside the fuel injectors, Dont pay BMW the Big dollars. Buy a filter for $50 AuD on Ebay or the whole unit for $120 AuD. You have to remove the engine covers to do it but thats not so hard really, just a bit involved and takes 10 mins to remove the engine cover. The actual filter is a throw away job, but the whole PCV assembly is just a degrease and clean. Its held in place by four small hex headed bolts, when you lift it you'll find the small can shaped filter pinned underneath. Swap the filter. its VERY unlikely to be your turbo at 41,000m.
The PCV is a known issue that causes smoking and even power loss, BMW actually did a retrofit kit PCV for use in cold climates., Are you in somewhere cold? and another possibility is not using the correct 'Winter diesel' in a cold spot. Very common fault for X5 owners going up to Thredbo or Perisher snowfields in Australia for the first time!
Happy Motoring

dear friend:a turbo can only boost the air that it receives,if the turbo is not damaged it should work properly,the turbo depends on the exhaust gasses for the speed that it turns which then boosts the air that it receives,that means that any restrictions on either side of theturbo will influens the preformance,check the air filter and ducting pipes.

If oil is coming out of your exhaust manifold you probably have bad piston rings. you can buy a compression tester at auto parts to verify the problem.
