Hi there,
I have problem with my 320d e46 recently started smoking white from exhaust and smell is very bad
do you have any ideas what it could be?
I have turbocharger from gap turbos fitted 1,5 year ago and it seems to be faulty

hi there,
this may be oil in exhaust, can you see any bits of oil on your exhaust?

Hi thanks for reply
yeah there is oil on exhaust, does it means that oil comes to turbocharger and gets burned in exhaust?

Mate, your turbo is definitely gone
if you have oil on exhaust then this is sign that your turbocharger needs to be replaced as it probably sucks oil

My advice is to take your car for free turbo inspection to best turbos, they can confirm for free where the problem is
