    check to see if you have a crack in your radiator. I had one and smoke only came out when i was at atop and then when i started to move it went away. The crack was on top and shot coolant on the AC compresser and engine.

    check to see if there is a crack in your intercooler. Unless you have a front mounted one.

    i am having the exact same problem. it is burning oil i know this cause my oil level is getting lower by the day. it looks almost like it could be the oil return line but i cant see exactly where its coming from without taking a few things off. if anyone figured out the solution to this problem it would be greatly appreciated

    The oil return line under my turbo was going bad and oil was all over the place causing light smoke to come out. I just changed the hose when I got a new turbo/engine. Oh and I could see the buildup if I went under the car and looked up at the turbo.
