blown turbo?????

not sure what my problem is but maybe u guys can help. i was sitting idleing for about 5 min when all of a sudden i started pouring blue smoke out of my exhaust. i was in a shitty neighborhood so i couldnt just turn the car off and look so i drove away and as soon as i got around the block there was no smoke at all. got to a friends house and checked the oil right away. level was good color was good. slight oder of gas but im told thats normal. this happened a couple of months ago and hasn't happened again. boost steady around 18psi spikes 21. engine still makes power only noticable problem is i cut out up top. plugs r good not fowled im thinking my tune is not to good. its dry around the turbo, no leaking oil so wtf happened. i do have a compressor surge issue but i havent drove the car hard at all since i started getting the surge. i try not to drive the car at all but i somtimes i have no choice. hopefully someone can tell me whats goin on.

Sounds like you might have an injector problem. Have you checked those at all? Or maybe the tune is definitely making the car run too rich.

Any questions about the Balt, all answered here:

Its not a injector, its either ou blew a seal out of your turbo or you cracked a piston, best way to tell is a commpression test if thats good order a new 02 housing gasket, tkae off your 02housing and see if there is oil there.

I was beat by RKRamos.

if the seal was blown would i be holding 18psi steady? i was told i would loose boost if the seal was blown. i got a reply on another forum and this has happened to other people. the guy said his was a blockage in the oil return line.
