What up fellas? I am new to this forum and looking for some advice. I have a 2005 saab 92x aero 2.0L with 125,000 on it. For those who are wondering why I am posting on this forum with a saab is infact this car has the subaru wrx motor in it. Ok with that cleared up onto the problem. I just did an oil change on the car and after 2 days I notice smoke coming from the hood with a funky smell. I lifted the hood and it was coming from where the turbo is. So after reasearching this thread I pulled off the heat shield to look for a leak. I see a small amout of oil on the heat shield and this white stuff that looks like something has been burning (please see pics). Anyone have any ideas of where my leak is coming from? This is not the first oil change that I have done on this car but it is the first time I have seen or smelled the smoke. 1 pic is from the top and 2 from the bottom. Thanks in advance!
PS wasnt sure how to put the pics in the post sorry
