I have a 2005 pt cruiser 2.4L turbo with 110,000 miles It smokes badly at start up in the morning. I was told the turbo is bad does that sound right?
Oftentimes smoke on start up only that stops after driving a while is bad valve guide seals allowing oil to seep in to cylinder..especially with an engine with 100,000 plus miles. Not sure about turbo
If you can access it remove the air intake tube from the turbo and look at the vanes to see if there is an oil coating on them, if you can't tell if there is oil there then try removing the air discharge side tube it will be very apparent if oil is there, if there is oil then turbo needs replaced or repaired, if no oil then I'd go with what davidh stated.
