My 2007 335i started to loose power and then lots of smoke

Customer Question

Customer: my 2007 335i started to loose power and then lots of smoke was coming from the tail pipe. There is oil dripping from the tailpipe. My mechanic does not know what could cause this. He is at a lost. I had a new turbo replaced plus valve cover gaskets. Can you help

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If you have oil dripping out of the tail pipe then you are ingesting oil in large quantities into the engine. The first thing I would have him check is the turbo to bale sure the seals are not leaking which could very well cause this type of problem. Have this checked and let me know and we can work from there.
