    Recommendations for turbocharger care and servicing

    To reach the maximum lifetime of turbocharger’s, the following engine maintenance service instructions must be strictly observed:

    • Air filter system maintenance
    • Oil filter system maintenance
    • Oil change intervals
    • Oil pressure control

    The turbocharger is design such that it will usually last as long as the engine it does not require any special maintenance.

    Please avoid the following:

    • Dirt in the oil
    • Inadequate oil supply (Oil system)
    • High exhaust gas temperatures (ignition/ injection system)
    • Penetration of foreign bodies into the turbine or the compressor Before fitting the turbocharger, checks must be performed:
    • Engine Oil, Oil filter and air filter change
    • Oil feed and return pipes, Intercooler and pipes checked and cleaned/
    • Oil pressure
    • DPF (diesel particular filter)/ Catalytic converter
    • Prior starting the engine with the replaced turbocharger, engine must be cranked few times prior starting to make sure fresh oil fulfils the system. No acceleration is allowed until engine is
    • Any recommendations given by Turbos Specialist Technicians must be followed.

    90% of all turbocharger’s failure is due to those causes. To avoid these failures, regular maintenance is recommended.

    Diagnosing failure

    If the engine does not operate properly, one should not assume that turbocharger is the cause of failure. It often happens that fully functioning turbochargers are replaced even though the failure does not lie here, but with the engine.

    Only after all these points have been checked should one check the turbocharger for faults. Since the turbocharger components are manufactured on high-precision machines to close tolerances and the wheels rotate up to 300,000 rpm, turbochargers should be inspected by qualified specialists only.
