I know it may be the turbo seals but are there any other possibilities? It never does it until it at least 120 degrees. When it does it it can let out alot of smoke but it only does it for a few seconds and then stops. I am xxxless but can differ between fuel and oil smell. I am just looking for any experience or ideas that anyone may have.
is the smoke coming out of one side of the exhaust, is smoke coming out by the left side (passenger side) of the motor? Color of smoke? Does it go away when accelerating.
