    Hi Ppl

    Started up my 2005 audi a4 2.0 tdi up last night and all i saw was the whole drive was filled with smoke. could not smell if it was oil or antifreeze cuz im all bugged up with a cold. got the mrs to rev it up and the smoke just got worse, so bad that i could not see the car. poped the hood, coolent levels were fine and checked oil which was low but the car had just been started. I gave it another shot an started it again, same thing but now as you rev it up engine misfires and there was a slight rattle from the engine. what could it be? turbo? headgasket?

    any help would be great

    Thanks in advance

    balance shaft wont cause these symtoms tho? it wouldnt smoke like cuben cigar lol and no oil pressure light. All i can think is turbo seals. will look at it over the weekend and see what the damage is. Heard the head gasket on these is like steal so that shouldnt go.
