HI all ,
Looking for a bit of help , changed my thermostat yesterday not sure if its coincidence but now have have clouds of white / grey smoke from the exhaust heavier under load when driving than when stood at idle . Temp gauge reaches ninety now withing five minutes , no obvious signs of coolant loss and seems to drive fine , except for the smoke . I'm scratching my head as to what it could be , head gasket ? Blown turbo seals ? spring to mind . Also removed the inlet manifold and throttle body to give them a good clean up and installed an awesome 19mm catch can . Would be good to know what could be the best way forward . Its an 02 plate S3 BAM engine .
Any info would be good
