hi there , ive had a lady ask me to look at her 307 2.0 hdi  03  that was blowing out  alot  white smoke
she told me she has had 2 reconed turbos fitted by someone else and that she was losing trust with them
my 1st thought was the cat was blocked with oil from the turbo,but 1st  i pluged the computer in and got the code for the particulate filter which was also being displayed on the dash ,she said that was always there since she got the car and the smoke was only recent
then when i looked at it, it was a particulate filter that had one of its pipes sealed off, i took it off and opened it up and it was blocked i unblocked and i put it back together ,still smoking put the lady said she had more power
i then took of the exhaust from the turbo and started it (just to cut out the exhaust) the smoke was still coming out of the turbo.
then i did a compression test and all seems to be fine i also changed the heater plugs while they where out
now the car seems you idle with a little smoke but when i reff it its still smoking
the lady says it dose seem alot better with the new heater plugs but i know theres still a problem
would be very greatful for someone input on this as she is a friend of the family and has already spent alot on the turbos
thanks

hi,,i would first make sure there is no internal fracture in the egr heat exchanger.
either bypass it or remove it and pressure test it.
but ideally pressure test coolant.
