The turbocharger return pipe seal may develop an oil leak. The leak can begin very small, but will eventually progress into a large leak. Our technicians recommend having this repaired at first signs of leakage.

Started smoking (bluish/white) after warm, but only at idle. No smoke above 1000RPM. Dealer said I needed a new turbo. $1,800 later, no smoke. I wish I understood why the car had to be warmed up, and it only smoked at idle RPM.
