Water in combustion chamber makes white smoke--suspect that the head gasket is leaking water into the chamber. If oil leaking around turbo, it may have a bad bearing and bad oil seal. Check waste gate valve and control.

Blue smoke is often the result of bad rings on the pistons. Engine rebuild time. It is possible that the turbo is leaking oil into your engine.

Would a blown gasket on the turbo of my Volvo S40 T4 1998 be responsible for a total loss of power and white smoke? Where is the turbo located??


WHITE SMOKE SOUNDS BAD COULD POSSIBLE BE A HEAD GASKET FAILURE, GET A COMBUSTION GAS TESTER AT AUTOZONE, CHECK FOR COMBUSTION GASSES IN THE COOLING SYSTEM.

I had white smoke from the tail pipeand getting hot ... I had the heads done , gasket valve . and resurfising. when I got the saab back ,I drove it about 49 miles started driving slugish , bufs of black...


Sounds to me like they did a bad head job. No pun intended. lol, White smoke indicates moisture in exhaust but black smoke indicates a oil leak. I would take it back and have them check the job they did. If the car is over heating then the head gaskets are pretty much blown.

Vilvo s40 serviced in june; engine oil warning


most definitely the cylinder head gasket is gone.the oil does not just disappear,it finds its way to the radiator,i.e. mixes with the water.unplug the rediator cap with care(when the engine is cold)and u will see some kind of sludge,creamy colour,which confirms that the cylinder head gasket is burnt.u need an engineer to do the job for u.

Trowing oil out thru exhaust


think you may have blown your head gasket ( turbo pushing too much boost)

Oil in the turbo, smoking bad!


check to make sure the turbo oil return pipe is not clogged. if it is pressure will build up causing oil leak through seal causing it to smoke.
