Mein Auto: 1993 750il
Really bad smoke.

Okay so I went to go pick up my 750il from the shop to take it to the auction after the mechanic telling me that my engine has something wrong with it and my transmission is about to go. So I start up the car and it starts up just fine. I left it running for a while because it was cold out side and usually when its cold the EML light comes on and the car has no power what so ever feels like the car won't even move. My dad asks if there was still oil in the car after we hear the engine makin a sound like a washing machine squeaking.

The mechanic says he is gonna check and see if their is oil in it so he takes the dipstick out while the car is running and I'm not the smartest camper here but I told him wouldn't it be better for me to turn off the car before he does that and he said it was fine. so I said w/e. After he takes out the dipstick the oil shoots out all over the car and him lucky the oil wasn't hot. After that we had to clean the oil off the engine so I move the car over to where he directed me to put it and the whole car shakes bad REALLY bad like when its in reverse like the engine or the drive line wants to come falling out.

He washes the Engine down with water again I'm not the smartest but I thought water damages the engine or is that if water fills the whole engine? anyway after that we had to drive it to the house my dad volunteered to drive it while I drive his car. I had lost him because I had to stay behind and lock the gate after we left from the shop. I find him and the car on the side of the road smoking feriously smoke coming from the inside of the car and from the muffler and I look beneath the car and theres a whole in the exhuast and smoke coming out and this isn't like little smoke I mean smoke like a fire is about to start but its white and cloudy. and I also saw smoke in the trunk so and a lot. the car wasn't smoking like this but I also forgot to say before we left he kept turning the car off and on and smoke went everhwere he did this at least 5 times I don't know why but I was getting the other car and I could hear him restarting the car.

Long enough of a story? Anyway so I know there has to be something wrong with the engine for the car to be smoking like this but I don't know what? Could it be something is burning the oil in a weird way? Or something else? just would like to hear some info I may be stuck with this car for the time being but I don't mind because I know I have another car to use the parts from or worst case switch all the good parts to the other one.

This is a 1993 E32 750il too.
