White Smoke. 2007 GTI 2.0l turbo

314 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Roman NJ

My son and I have picked up a fixer-upper.

Which periodically has a lot of white smoke coming out of the tail pipe.

This is what we’ve done so far.

We’ve done a cold, fuel pump fuse out, compression test.

The result was 175 psi for each cylinder.

The oil is solid black. No bubbling.

The antifreeze is just antifreeze. There’s no oil mixed into the antifreeze.

We did find that the turbo had a big chunk of metal taken out of it.

The spark plugs are coated in oil.

At this point, I’m wondering if I replace the spark plugs, oil, and turbo, and if that’s the solution?

Appreciate the help.

Disconnect a intercooler and take a look if there is water in it. If there is, once it reaches certain level it can be sucked in and cause the white smoke
