Hi there,

What colour is the smoke? Bluish is oil, Black is fuel, white coolant. If oil burning, deck the plugs to see if one is fouling. If all then oil is entering the engine via the manifold and possibly the turbo as well. Is there oil specks on the rear of the car? Little black pin head size oil stains, this would normally indicate a failed turbo seal get your mechanic to check out these things first.
