Well ****... it dosent smoke much for a little like sometimes its noticeable but sometimes super light. I checked my coolant its full and no coolant on oil cap.


The weather has changed from 70s to 50s I was told condensation? It does it for like 1 hr when cold. After that it only smell like rich gas no sweet taste just rich gas

Could it just be whatever anti-rust crap they put on the exhaust burning off? I could see that happening for one day but you would notice the smell. I'm with Jonny, it's likely a head gasket unless somehow coolant is getting into the exhaust via your turbo water lines.

A lot of white smoke generally means blown head gasket.

Try the sniff test. Smell that white smoke. Antifreeze is very distinctive.

Edit: I see you did that. Can't hurt to try again, especially if it's getting worse.
