Unhappy Problems after completing work

Id really like some advice on this one, my 2005, just finished doing egr delete, coolant filter kit, and new oil cooler and now I am blowing a lot more white smoke than I was, and it is smoking out of the oil fill and dipstick tubes really bad. like no piston rings bad. And I now have a boost leak at one of the 5 clamps or 5 gaskets I had to undo in the process but I think I can figure that one out on my own. all this smoke just really has me worried. thanks in advance. - Brian

Turbo Help

Had a lot of white smoke out my tailpipe and could hear an air leak, so I pulled off my turbo. The exhaust output side is full of oil. So I split er open and the whole thing is saturated. So I assume that is the cause of the white smoke out the tailpipe, and would that also the why it is smoking out the oil fill and dipstick tube? I sure hope so. And should I get a reman or try rebuilding this thing myself? is it just a seal? any help would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry to hear about your troubles but did you verify the original cooler did fail? maybe theres another existing problem. I dont think a turbo would fail and cause white smoke coming out from the crank case. Is there oil coming from the up pipes getting fed into the turbo? Thats just bad luck if the turbo did fail after the work you did. but I guess its time to upgrade!

Clean the turbo out and use some never seize, then put it back together and drive it for a bit. See if any residue left in the system burns itself out. Drive it on the freeway and give her hell for a bit and see if it clears up, if it continues after a week or a full tank of fuel driving around then you need to open things back up to take a closer look. As long as your not losing coolant or oil then I wouldn't be too concerned. As far as the exhaust leak goes its probably the up pipe that connects to the turbo from the manifolds, very common spot to leak since its such a pain to get it to seat properly.
