Smoking coming from turbo.

Asked by Feb 26, 2017 at 08:00 PM about the 2008 MINI Cooper S

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi guys! I've own my MINI cooper S (2008) For about six months. I keep the oil
changed regularly. Anyway, I was jumping a friend's car off today and I had put
it in sports mode (engages the turbo) and I noticed a small bit of white smoke
coming from the turbo, or right next to the turbo. So, it is not coming from the
exhaust. Upon closer inspections I noticed what could be some oil. You can
see in the pictures. That's exactly where the smoke was coming from.

Add: I was think Turbo oil line leak?
