Smoking problems


Recommended Posts

Hi guy...

Recently my 2002 wrx has started to smoke not too much when idling but if I give it abit of a boost I down the road it seems to smoke much more... Is there a quick easy way of finding out if it's the turbo or not??  Is there any thing I can buy to help the smoking issue also is there a better grad oil to help this... Cheers guys

There is usually a little oil in there anyway but just look for excessive amounts of it in small puddles or something. Best way to check is look in the intake hose going to the turbo for oil. I heard somewhere that it can also affect boost pressure but not sure on that.
