Exclamation Turbo not working ??

I have a 97 VW Jetta TDI that is no longer making boost from the turbo. i was driving and went over a hard bump in the road and started going uphill and then noticed a significant drop on power (80 to then 60) and then the Turbo started making a raddle / hissing noise and has since stopped and i am making no power this is a significant problem i am also smoking and can’t tell if it’s white or black ( my car usually doesn’t “ roll coal “ )
please someone help if you’ve had this same issue or could help direct me in what direction it could be.

seal broke and engine is shot.

Check your hoses, you probably knocked one loose when you went over that bump.

I found a boost leak on mine by spraying soapy water on the hoses and tubes.
