    Default LOTS of smoke from exhaust??!!

    every once in a while when i start the car i can see in my mirrors a hell of alot of blue smoke coming from the exhaust! my first thought was it was the turbo but it still boosts well and i got a reciept from march this year stating its had the bearings and seals done, ive only had the car 2 weeks and its probably only done this 3/4 times.
    any ideas guys???

    Hi pal, yes well I took it to a garage for a check and he said it has a very slight oil leak at the back of the engine! I also noticed some smoke coming out of the bonnet, arches ect ect whilst it was idling to cool the turbo and he said it was the oil leaking onto the exhaust hence the smoke! Do u think this could have anything to do with it?? Thanks

    Blue = oil.
    Black = intercooler plumbing / air leak
    White = water

    Could be oil leaking through the seals of turbo when parked then when you start it it's burning it all away. if you have a receipt get them to have a look.
