    What is Powertrain?

    I have a situation where white smoke comes out from around my turbo area once in a while. Maybe once every 3 weeks and its not very consistent but it happens sometimes. My turbo still boosts fine and the car seems normal but there is white smoke at times. Im guessing its a leak.

    here is my question. Is the turbo or a leak in the oil or coolant lines covered under powertrain warranty?

    Way up high.
    What are your mods?

    Also what did the smoke smell like? Any dripping underneath your car? Have you removed your heatshields to look at your turbo to see if you can see any signs of a leak?
