Default 2004 dream cruiser turbo issue?

So the other morning I drove my wife to work. Car running fine. Home for a few hours before work. Get in the car and when I start it heavy white smoke out of the exhaust. After running for a minute the smoke goes away. Drove it around the block and have to slowly accelerate. When I hit the gas it starts to smoke. I hear the turbo start to spool up and sound a little funny. Kinda like a tin can in the dryer. My brother in-law was saying the turbo is bad and leaking so thatís what the white smoke is. Curious if anyone has had this problem. Thank you

You need to check the oil first and rule out a blown head gasket. If the oil doesn't look like a milkshake, then it might be turbo related. Check the oil line going to it and see if it's cracked.

Ignorance can be educated, crazy can be medicated, but there IS no cure for stupid.
