Related Repair Advice

  • The engine oil supply to the turbocharger is critical; they are exposed to hot exhaust ages and spin at very high RPM. This is why it's important to follow the manufacturer's recommended oil type and change intervals.
  • It is often recommended to allow the turbocharger to "cool down" after driving by letting the engine idle for one minute before turning it off
