Look like my turbo went bad again. White smoke every where. The only confusion I have is the amouint of oil dripping and spraying into the engine bay. The oils leaks from what looks like...the transmission housing and the up spray....I think is from the oil hitting the flywheel. The car turns on like a match but the oil spewing has me worried. Can the rear plate crack anyplace else besides the common oil filter area if it did detonate? Oh yeah once I drive it normal, It drives fine, once it starts to boost it really holds back. I hope it's just the turbo.....any ideas or suggestions

Thanx in advance

Sounds all to familiar.

I'm hoping the same thing (the turbo) is causing the white smoke as well.

I don't think this is your oil leak but i had the oilpressure sending unit crack

at the threads (while driving) and it was puting out quite a bit of oil.

Good luck and just keep pouring in oil till its fixed
