    White smoke indicates burning water, fuel is usually black, and blue is oil...

    sorry to say but blue or white is usually pretty bad... if its more blue its prob either turbo seals, valve stem seals, or completely shot piston rings, if its white either head gasket or cracked head block or completely shot/cracked turbo..... think your nrxt step is a compression test, rempove all the spark plugs and insert the tester and wind over two or three times all four readings should be the same at least within 5 to 10 psi of each other.

    Just got my car back and head gasket is fine, got a coolent leak from turbo,they seem to think I may have a blocked breather hose? That's why it could be smoking,you can also smell fumes in the cabin,could this be true?
