my cars runs great. i guess it could pull harder a little bit, but im unsure if thats just in my head. my car is burning oil. when im driving around i have no problems. nothing happens. when im stuck at a stoplight my car tends to smoke, ALOT. this does not always happen. but sometimes. i had a compression test and the results were 155,160,160,160. im assuming thats pretty good. im guessing that i have a broken oil seal in my turbo? what do you guys think this could be. i love my car its sooooo nice. i just bought it and its wayyy better then my gst. that car was so messed up. i had no idea how much untill i drove my new talon tsi. i just want to fix the problem so everything is perfect. please help me out with your diagnoses and insight about my problem. thanks alot in advance to everyone who replies. thanks.


also its not that i just dont see it smoking when im driving normally. i drove the car back home 500 miles from where i bought it and it was all highway. i checked the oil everytime i made a stop for food or gas and no oil was spent on the trip. like i said earlier it only happens when im at a stop.
