Dear customer my name is***** the expert who will attend you today, I am reviewing your query at the moment you are viewing this message, if you wish you can tell me your name, to know who I have the pleasure to talk to, also if possible I would like you to send me a photo or video in which your fault is better appreciated, it would help a lot to improve my final answer. If you have done a previous check or diagnosis in which you have obtained any error codes, that would also be helpful. Please note that the system will automatically offer you a service call, this has an additional cost to the initial cost of the consultation, and not in all cases it is necessary, so I recommend you to dispense with the call for now, we can continue through this chat without any problem. Thank you very much for trusting in the just answer.

No indication
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 15 days ago.

At the moment, white smoke is still coming out when switching on? from which part is it coming out?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
The garage didn’t say
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Was from the exhaust
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 15 days ago.

Dear customer, this is a possibility, ideally a vacuum leak test should be performed, to really confirm if there is no problem in the gas recirculation in any other section.

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Ok what’s the likelihood of the turbo be blown ?
Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 15 days ago.

Dear customer, usually a turbo damage ends up activating some sensors, so I see a very low possibility for now, as you have no active indicators and no error codes.

Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 15 days ago.
