    Blue smoke(reall really scared)

    I posted a message about my coupe turbo,its done 69k miles. When the car gets warm is blows plumes of blue smoke from the exhaust and you can smell the burning oil it used the full sump of oil in 80 miles.
    The garage first said the turbo was ok and that the beather pipes were blocked, they replaced them and said the residue would burn out of the exhaust, it didnt,The car is still smoking as bad as ever and you can smellthe burning oil. Is there any garages near rochdale or manchester anybody can recommend or any ideas? from what ive read i still think its the turbo.

    JEEEZZ that is a lot of oil!

    I think you could have either a serious turbo failure or it could be piston rings/valve stems up the shoot or headgasket failure?

    Hope you find the problem soon!

    Does it smoke when giving it some right foot? or just on the overrun and idle?

    I know what you mean, alot of dodgy places out there... and I have worked for a fair few of them. And main dealers can be the worst. I try as much as I can myself with the help of my boyfriend.
