335d turbo and exhaust problems Help! I had some exhaust smell coming in through the vents so I popped the hooded to have a look around the engine.
While looking around I noticed that the smell was very intense around the turbos so I had a closer look with a flashlight and I noticed a lot of oil was leaking out around the turbo.
I took it to the shop and they replaced the turbos.
This was a simple fix but the bigger problem is the exhaust leak around the engine! This is a hazardous and poisonous problem that can be hard to detect and fix...
I will post a picture where I will point out the spots where oil was and is leaking! I cant figure out where the exhaust smell is coming from but I know for sure it is coming from the left side of the engine around the turbos... I don't know why it is not constant, it only smells from time to time, usually at low RPM under 2500.
Also I open the oil cap on the engine and I noticed a lot of white smoke inside the engine. Is that normal in a diesel engine? (this is the first diesel that I ever owned so I am not so familiar with this type of engine)
here is a picture of the 335d engine with description of the problem areas that I discovered.
