Help needed please, I have a 98 Beetle TDI,ALH that all of the sudden started smoking excessively, went through 3 quarts of oil in about 8 miles. A total smoke screen behind me while driving. The compression checked good.
How's the turbo bud? Sounds like the seals might have gone. If you take off the pipes going from the turbo to the intercooler and up to the inlet manifold there should only be a small amount of oil spray/vapour. If it's a bit excessive then I think you'll have to explore the turbo itself.
