Q: Car keeps smoking

asked by on

The turbo is going out, and my car keeps smoking. The dealership said that they fixed the problem, but they didn't.

If oil is leaking from the turbo seals into the intake, then it may be time to replace the turbo. You could also have an internal engine problem with the cylinders, or piston rings. I recommend having a certified mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, run a diagnostic on your smoke issue, and inspect the turbo.
