Hi, new to the forum and unfortunately straight in there with a problem.
Just bought the car and it has immediately developed a smoking issue. It doesnt missfire, runs smooth, after 20 seconds of idling it begins to chug white smoke (turbo seals) which sometimes has a tinge of blue (other side of the turbo). Its not massively heavy, where it fills the street but its still a fair bit. When driving the car there is no smoke until hard acceleration and that is black smoke (boost leak/over fueling?). No lights on the dash.
Now I pulled the airbox out, to check the condition of the airfilter (which needs replacing) and decided to remove the top boost pipe into the intercooler. It seemed to have quite a bit of oil in it, same with the boost pipe connected to the inlet manifold. Its had the injector recall and so im thinking the turbo seals have gone. Car has done 110k and I believe the turbo is original. Ive had petrol turbo cars and at worst they have had a slight mist in the boost pipes, these have substantially more.
Is it safe to assume the worst in that the turbo needs a recon? And before it kills the dpf.
Thanks in advance.
