What is a Turbocharger?

A turbocharger, or turbo is a turbine-driven device that increases an engine’s efficiency and power. It achieves this by forcing extra air into the combustion chamber. It improves output because the turbine can force more air and fuel into the engines combustion chamber.

Why use a Turbocharger?

The objective of a turbocharger is to improve an engine’s efficiency by increasing the density of the intake gas or air.

Common faults:

The most common reason why a turbo might fail is due to lack of oil to the turbo. Poor maintenance of an engine can be a key factor with early turbo failures. The turbo vanes can get damaged through the bearing becoming worn because of a lack of oil or poor oil quality. A worn bearing will effect the spinning of the turbo blades and it may begin the squeal. Turbo squeal should not be confused with turbo whistle, which is air whistling through the turbo vanes. A squeal is literally the vanes spinning at more than 4,000 rpm and contacting the turbo casing.

How to preserve your Turbo:

The best way to help prevent your turbo from wearing is firstly to allow your engine to warm up fully before overexerting it. The Turbo is lubricated by oil feed pipes and when the engine is cold oil is thicker. Therefore the lubrication process is not as efficient compared with when the engine is warm. Always Allow the engine to warm up naturally. This will help the life span of a turbo, as will regular oil changes. likewise using oil flushing additives to keep the oil ways clear is also recommended.
