Hi guys..

Wondering if anyone can help me?

I have a 2008 tdv8 Hst 61000 miles had it from new,Serviced on time etc...

So this morning took it to the car wash. Got it washed on way back home driving fine power was all there,
Set off from traffic lights put my foot down maybe revs went to about 3000rpm car pulled strong and i heard a pop noise an engine lost power, Looked in my rear view an there was white smoke...Lots of it!!!
So pulled over turned engine off and started engine again no flashing/warning lights in dash...just like its gone in limp mode wont go over 5mph, an white some coming out the right exhaust pipe.

Yep, you've either popped a hose off or split one.

no expt, but why would a slit hose cause white smoke.
Bust turbo is my guess.

It was a blown Turbo when mine started with the white smoke, no pop noise on mine though so you may be lucky
