    You tried investigating under hood?
    Any signs of leaks or burning of fluid (smoke) in the engine bay

    Check to see if the rocker cover gasket is leaking, very common and if leaking at the front it will get onto the turbo and burn.

    Other things to check are the pipe between the rocker cover and underside of crossover pipe, the pipe between rocker cover and throttle body and the pipe from the crankcase to the rocker cover.

    the rocker cover gasket looks like its gone. there is dry oil around the rocker cover, i have already ordered one and it come today.should i clean all the pipes through as well, like intercooler pipes and crossover pipe?
