This is my first turbo car and I believe the turbo is Oil lubricated & or cooled. What happens when the Turbo let's go? I think mine did today I have 82,000km on it go figure! When I went to accelerate from light It was like the turbo went off line and had no power like the MAF malfunctioning. Drove maybe 100ft to next light and when started to take off under reduced power heard ratlling noise from engine and tons of white smoke out exhuaste so I shut her down and coasted down hill for 1,000ft or so and pulled off on side street. tried to restart but it would not, no dummy lights came on for oil pressure so I'm thinking engine is still good? I later checked engine oil level when I got towed back home and there is nothing showing on dip stick. Is there any eclectronics the will prevent it from starting if the turbo goes or other saftey mechanism? the engin is dry and so is underneath the car so no fluids are leaking, coolant level is normal and there is no foam or froth in the engine. Any suggestions until I get a mechanic to see if engine spins freely with pry bar?
