my guess is bad piston rings. or turbo seals. usually what white smoke means. hopefully it's nothing serious.

I am having a similar probelm while idle white smoke will come out the exhaust. I have checked the oil and coolant and they seem ok. I also have a buzzing/whistling sound while driving it. Where are the little filters in the oil lines running to the turbo?
