Blowing smoke!!!

Postby YASHA7FOLD on Dec Mon 20, 2010 3:48 pm

Well I got in my A6 2.7t today and started it up. The next thing I know I am in a cloud of smoke! The car ran fine the day before. It seemed to be lacking some power but did not throw any codes and the engine is still running smooth. So am I safe to say that I have a couple of turbos with bad seals? Or are there any other guesses. No I have not done a compression test yet. Thanks guys. :( :banghead:

I didn't start the car until around 2pm and it was around 16 degrees out. I have had the car running in below 0 and no problems. I am running 10W30.

audi recommends 10w-30 for every weather condition....but i would stay with the 5w specially during the winter....and yes the s4 does it and then all the boost burns it off!!!!! woooohoooooo!!!!!
