    would the con rods explain the blue smoke? Blue smoke would indicate that the oil seals for the turbo are going perhaps

    its probably melted a piston which will dropped metal onto the rod bearings and kill the bottom end shells , if it was just turbo i would expect white smoke and no rattle ! if he starts the car and revs it and as it drops back to idle the rattle can be heard !?? its defo bottom end

    i suppose you would get white smoke if the water seals had gone but doesn't it have oil seals as well which would give blue smoke. I hope it is the turbo and not the bottom end becuase that sounds really expensive but then the turbos not cheap either

    its the rattle thats the worrying thing , if its turbo only i think there would be more smoke as the compressor wheel would be wobbling about and that would surely interfere with the water seals too
