Bad Valve Seals/ Tubo Seals. Ton of smoke.

Well my cars blowing insane amounts of grey smoke upon deceleration, when coming to a stop just getting ton of smoke out the rear exhaust.. Going to take my car to the dealer however i am thinking its either bad turbo seals or valve seals which i hope is covered.. cars got 12,500 miles on it.

Anybody else run into an issue or hear about running into this issue on our platform?

Oh wow. Unless you're seriously tuned, that's pretty low mileage wise to be seeing these issues. I hope it works out.

Should be covered under warranty as long as the dealer doesn't try to pull the ol' "they all do it" bull. Let us know what they say.

Subbed. Sorry to hear this man, can you shed some light on who tuned your car and what mods you have and who did the installs?

Not yet, I haven’t called Infiniti .. I’m going on Friday to swap my stock downpipes back in and then give them a call... however multiple Facebook groups a lot of people had similar issues and said that it’s because of the full downpipes and to switch to HFC downpipes... I’m still going to go through Infiniti but about 10 people sent me videos of there cars smoking and they all had full or just lower DP.

Ran into that when I was at 10-15k miles then changed my oil to 5-30 and haven't see it yet. Currently at 18k miles.
