It could be a turbo oil seal leaking. a oil ring on a piston or just oil being drawn thru the intake side of the turbo from a saturated ccv filter, or even a injector over fueling a little.

I think of short of pulling them and having em bench tested, the only other way is a cyclinder balance test which takes plugging into capable equipment. Even wth that, i think it would be tough to say wether its an injector, or rings etc.

ok thanks i have a scanner but that doesn't check the injectors right. newer to diesels so don't know much. i looked at my turbo earlier and saw oil on the turbo by that plug that go s into the turbo does that mean the seals are bad or the oil line just leaking

Has your engine ever been apart? For head gaskets or somethin? I think a bent push rod could be one possible cause of your blue smoke/unburned diesel smell
