    Smoke from under the hood turbo area

    Hey everyone here an issue im having. I noticed it today.

    Smoke was coming from under my hood this morning and i think i traced it to my turbo area. I look and found some wetness around what looks to be an oil line. Its a braket right before the turbo that a line feeds into. Here are some pics. What do you guys think?



    Now these pictures were taken this mornign about an hour after i parked and everything dried up....
    Ima bring it to the dealer tommorow morning but i just wnated to see what you guys had to say.

    Do you smell coolant or oil? From the pics it looks like it may be coolant. Check the connection from the overflow tank above and in front of the turbo to the turbo itself. It's a small rubber hose and the clamps used are slip-on type. Maybe one has failed or the hose has burst.

    Check the coolant lines running across the front of the intercooler... put clamps on them if necessary.... I did, and I had the same problem.

    If it were oil, it would still be wet..... sounds like coolant to me.

    Got it fixed... turned out that the line was the oil feed to the turbo. The bolt was tightened to tight and crushed the copper washer. Replaced it and tightened it correctly and everything is good.
