White Smoke. 2007 GTI 2.0l turbo

316 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.

Thanks for the advice.

I’ll check this out tomorrow.

I forgot to add the previous owner said it was burning a litre of oil every 10,000 km.

I don’t think it changes anyone’s advice.
