Have you checked your engine oil level to see if it is low at all?

Did this occur suddenly?

There is a lack of power. I did check the engine oil and it was low
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.

It is possible the turbo has failed which can send oil into the exhaust causing the smoke as well as the lack of power.This can be a common fault.I would have the turbo tested to see if it has failed needing replaced.
