Problem with 03 WRX.
Hello guys. I am in need of your help. I own an 03 WRX with 75K miles on it. That car is all stock with the exception of a short shifter.
I drove to the laundry mat night, about 2 miles from my house, really babying it shifting at 2K. When I pulled into the laundry mat parking lot and parked, I got a wiff of something burning. I sat for a minute and saw smoke comming from my hood. I poped the hood and noticed the smoke was coming from my turbo (or that area). Since it was dark, I couldnt tell for sure. There was NO oil or fluids that I could see. I didnt try to drive it back in fear of hurting something thats not allready hurt.
My question is, What do you think it could be? I am new to turbo engines so just taking a guess, I am thinking that my turbo spun a bearing or something of that affect. The car did not throw any cel's so I dont know if pluggin it in would help.
