    So. My cars been smoking a bit lately just assumed it was the weather. Started her up today and its got worse thought id leave car to get up to temp still no luck. I find it only does it on idle. I went behind the car whilst smoking and would explain the smell as boiling coolant. Hoping its not the head gasket. Any ideas?

    Have you checked the oil for any white gunk? Signs of head gasket, but check your turbo seals and see if u have any leaks anywhere, or could be signs of a turbo issue
