    turbo probs?

    I noticed some slight smoke coming from the turbo area. It seems to be intermittent. But theres a oily smell from that area. Is it looking like a oil seal problem. ?New turbo?!

    Help Please!

    i would check and make sure that there is no oil leeking from anywhere else and dripping onto the turbo making it smoke. If the oil seals in the turbo have gone you would get smoke out the exhaust.

    I am working on the assumption that not everyones issue have the same resolution and am interested to see how different people have solved it. Figured it would be better to ask the person for the benefit of everyone on the site that may have looked as well and found a dead thread with no resolution... than post the same question again...
