...a miserable death. Under hard driving, and between shifting I get blueish or white smoke from the exhausts. At first I thought it was my coolant seals, but the temp guage doesn't even move off 1/4 mark. It's constant, no jumping. So I took it to J&R's and the guy said it smelled like oil coming from the turbo. He said your turbo might have a bad seal. Well yesterday I noticed oil around the turbo, and the pipes running into them. It was covered with oil. I'm probably going to go hybrid but what do you guys think?



Also, anyone of you NY/NJ guys willing to help me replace my turbo with a hybrid? I'm willing to pay.
