One second the car was driving fine, I stopped, went to the gym and came out and the car started giving off white smoke. It has been giving off a faint hissing sound on the engine the day before and now when I accelerate the noise gets louder.

I looked under the hood and there was a small amount of white smoke coming from what seems near the dash. There also was oil were the sparks plugs were although I couldn't get it all the way open to completely see.

Heres a video

Any Ideas?

Welcome to Swedespeed, William.

Sure does look/sound like a failed turbo given the hissing sound, oil on the engine, white smoke and abrupt onset.

It might not be that at all.
You're in the wrong forum to start with, (try the 98-2000 forum), and have someone answer you that's not a RWD Volvo person!!

It very well may be a turbo but it also may not be as serious
