    Hope someone can give me some help. My '99 1.9 tdi has suddenly developed alot of white/blue smoke when it is under load , also the turbo seems louder . the car runs clean on idle? If anyone can give me any ideas i would be most grateful.

    I'm running a 130 TDI Avant. It was delivered new with exactly the same symptoms. It went back to the dealer the next day. It turned out that it was a faulty O ring in the turbo. Got it back a couple of days later. It smokes a little under load but I guess that the way it is with a diesel.
