where to start??
we had the low oil pressure warning come up (hubby ignored it and didn't tell me :mad: then we had lots of smoke. checked oil and it was low so hubby put (wait for it)...........5 litres in!! :steam:cue lots more smoke from the back end (to the point where i couldn't see out the windows)
we've done a double flush, changed oil filter and put a proper amount in. the smoke died down but it is still there. my friend says its the turbo :crazy:
hubby has also broke the suspension:mad::rant::crying::forehead:

any ideas on the smoke?
we have no spare cash right now and tbh this car is a money pit, we need to get it fixed asap and as cheap as possible then sell!!

On normal circumstances yes i would also point to a
turbo problem. But i would say the reason for your
heavy smoking right now is because of oil in exhaust
due to over filling. Theres 2 options to this you can either start vehicle let it idle for a prolonged length
of time to burn oil off in exhaust then take vehicle
for a drive. Option 2 remove exhaust from vehicle
and power hose interior of exhaust Hth Regards Mickeybo

I've let it run for about an hour and a half! I've now got a puddle of oil on my drive and lots of smoke that disperses easily
