I had the exact same problem with my car about 18mths ago....is the smoke white ??????
I found that the air intake pipe had come off the intercooler. Popped it on, tightened it up and problem solved, Hope this is the same easily solved problem for you !!!

i was thinking turbo air leakage from a blown pipe or something, i had this on a pug but the exhaust smoke was excess black . if the actual turbo went bang then id have thought parts of your turbo would have ended up in the engine and wouldnt run at all!
fingers crossed its not major

Blown turbo? Laguna dti

Well as promised the results from the garage is not good the turbo has blown along with the cat so I'm having a happy easter :crazy:, anyway shopping on the net for the bits has made me a happier bunny:eek: can anyone confirm for me the turbo on a 1.9dti laguna 1999 is a GARAT gt 1544.

I had similar prob on motorway today, the throttle seemed like it opened up and i had no control over it, it was revving very high and blowing smoke out exhaust. i pulled over to hard shoulder and the engine wouldnt turn off with the key, it stopped itself after a few seconds and there was smoke coming from back of engine (turbo area)
I assume i need a new turbo but i am told there are 3 engine variants, mine is a F9Q engine I am told by renault garage. Are all the DTi turbos the same? Does anyone have a part number for the turbo I need?

Any help greatly appreciated!!
