Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Volvo S60 4 cyl Automatic 80000 miles
I have a 2004 Volvo 2.5T engine. Yesterday it started pouring white smoke from the exhaust while driving and at idle. I took it to my Volvo mechanic who diagnosed the problem just from me driving into his parking lot. He said my turbo was bad. I have been reading today on various forums, and I don't see anyone who says anything about the turbo doing this or that this is a definite symptom of the turbo being bad. I did see a post that says white smoke indicates water or antifreeze so now I am confused. Is white smoke billowing out of the exhaust a sign of turbo failure, and is there an actual part called a turbo?
Thanks - Robin
