Started unhooking the pressure lines for a new catch can install.
While at that, started scoping out the turbo and reading up online and in the books. Started seeing a little smoke over the Winter, esp after running for a little bit and when at idle can make some small clouds. Have heard no big bangs or other weirdness so guessing oil is getting out through the turbo, maybe not draining well or something. No oil spots, but got a small bit of oil off the bottom of the turbo in the middle (need to take a better look). Car was down a bit on oil, but not certain how much may have been burned and/or maybe the oil guys shorted me a bit at my last change.
Only have about 40K and gets driven two, three times a month, so spirited driving only every now and then.
Guessing maybe oil is not draining properly (drain gummed?) or something else is off, but thinking I may end up pulling the turbo out before I'm done, although that won't be for a week plus. Of course, it's time for emissions, so can't let it wait too long. :P
