So I noticed that a lot of light colored smoke was coming out of the exhaust. The car had consumed a lot of oil but I didn't notice any blue shade in the smoke as i looked in the rear view mirror (typically burned oil produces blue smoke). The car also produced significantly lower power than usual, almost no pull below 2500rpm and some pull in higher revs but not as much as usual.
Sometimes the car even started jerking really badly while producing a lot of light smoke. I also noticed some weird whistling sound starting about at 2000rpm that i haven't heard before.
My guess is that the turbo is broken and oil is leaking into it, burning in the chamber and coming out of the exhaust as smoke. What do you guys think is the problem?
