- Your turbo unit MUST have regular oil changes.
- On engine start up wait several seconds before boosting the turbo.
- On shut down, let the engine run to idle speed before turning off the ignition.
- Don't necessarily blame the turbo for bad performance - it could be a victim of some other malfunctioning engine part
Remember a turbocharger is an integral part of the engine and usually a reliable part.
SYMPTOMS of Turbo Failure:
- 1 Lack of power
- 2 Blowing exhaust smoke
- 3 Passing Lubricants
- Each turbocharger is completely dismantled and thoroughly cleaned for damage assessment
- A diagnosis is completed, and a report on condition is given to the customer
- New bearings and seals are replaced as a matter of course.
- All other components are checked and replaced as necessary
- All new parts are original equipment, specified by the manufacturer.
- Each rotor assembly is individually checked and balanced, and once the turbo is reassembled, the whole unit is VSR balanced (Vibration Sort Rig) to over 100,000 RPM.
- A final check is undertaken that all settings are to the manufacturer's specification before the warranty is written and the turbocharger made ready for despatch.
