1.8 T - Turbo troubles - SMOKE!
I would be eternally grateful if someone can help me out here!
Newbie here. Glad to be a part of what seems the best of Audi forums.
I have a 1998 A6 1.8 T with 80000 miles on the clock. The car has started to blow smoke from the exhaust and alot of it at that. It is white smoke with a bluey tinge (very slight). I am aware that it is probably the turbo but have been advised that it could just be a blocked oil feed pipe or simply in need of a new MAF as the engine runs slightly rough when it is cold although this correct after a little while driving.
The smoke from the exhaust only kicks out at about 2750 revs which obviously point to the turbo. It does not kick out at any other time.
What would any one that knows more than the very little I know suggest?
Really need some help on this one.
Thanks in advance
