My car is smoking and losing power.
The most common problem is a blown turbo. The shaft bearing and seal may have failed, causing oil to leak into the engine, and come out of the tailpipe as smoke. The turbo bearing may be bad, causing the loss of power. I recommend having a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, check your vehicle out for you, beginning with a thorough inspection of the cause of the smoke.
