    it smokes on tick over and plums when you rev it the only time it seems to stop is when you rev it up and hold at around 3k+

    Do you get white smoke on tick over?

    Got anything that looks like mayo inside the oil filler cap?

    so it was smoking before the oil change?....


    White smoke at idle could mean engine damage, cracked cylinder head or head gasket failure. Very rarely caused by a damaged turbocharger.
