Ok ill check the turbo early in the morning. I did go to AutoZone to check the code but by the time i got there the CEL was not on and the code didnt stick so they couldnt find anything. My other questions are you said that the oil filler smoke was an indication of the piston area. And if its the turbo would the oil have been in those areas or not? I plan to do as many tests as I can in the morning time, Im just trying to grasp what i need to look for in the morning.
