Default Smoke arising from this part of the car...



What could it be?? If I drive granny style, shifting before 3k RPM doesnt smoke but even if I go a little bit towards 4k RPM.. it happens. It's not white visible smoke but you can notice it... I'm gonna see what codes come up in a bit..

Might have better luck in the correct section.....like "factory forced induction".


However, immediately coming to mind are possibly PCV system is dirty and it's injesting oil, or there's a pinleak in the coolant tube, and spraying the turbo.

If you have codes, it's best to post them so people aren't guessing across the board, plus...you can search for that code since someone is bound to have gotten it as well.

exhaust leak more than likely...or oil or coolant leaking, but usually you can see that on the underside of the car...my first guess is an exhaust leak though

I have the same exact problem. I've been trying to figure it out for a while now, but I haven't fixed it. I think I'm gonna take it to a shop and see what they say...

search for "plate of doom"

it's possible there is a plate on the rear of the engine that is leaking oil onto the exhaust.
