    Can your car make this much smoke?

    my turbo decided it didnt like its oil seals a few weeks back so now oil flows happily into the exhaust. I decided to fire it up for the first time since it happend to get a video as I find it quite funny (or did until I realised I was going to have to pay to fix it). The turbo had been smoking for a while but not too badly until it popped. I came on boost halfway through 2nd and it made a lovely fizzing noise and the boost dropped off. I looked out of my back window and the entire road was filled with smoke. This vid is with the car cold so imagine how much more smoke there was after 20 mins of caning it. Moral of the story, stick NA

    It would definitely go better with an engine in it

    It's not a fault, it's a smoke screen from factory! A nice way to get away from cops

    I had that with my old car when it went....mind you, mine was sat in traffic after an accident on the motorway...pretty embarrasing when you cant see the cars behind you due to a sudden bit of random thick fog from the back of your car lol

    When mine did this it turned out to just be a clogged breather hose.

    Its definately the turbo mate. Itve got it off and its full of oil inside but nothing further up above the turbine
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it
