WHAT IS A TURBO & HOW DOES IT WORK?
Your engine uses a mixture of air and fuel to produce power. A turbo works by adding more air in order to increase the power of your engine (without increasing the costs) by spinning an air pump using the exhaust. The pump pushes all the extra air into your engine’s cylinders and thus delivers greater horsepower.Read more
HOW WILL I KNOW SOMETHING IS WRONG?
There are a few common warning signs that something may be going wrong with your turbo, these include but are not limited to:
- Slow Acceleration and lack of power
- Burning oil faster than usual
- Engine Management Light (EML) on
- Loud whistling or whining noise
- Turbo is smoking or you can see oil around the seal (gasket)
If you experience any of these symptoms you should get the vehicle checked right away. If left too long and the turbo breaks or a part of the turbo disintegrates, it could cause serious engine damage.
WHAT DO WE DO?
When it comes to repairing or replacing a car’s turbo, it requires trained mechanics and high-quality parts to ensure that turbo repairs are completed to a high standard. Basingstoke MOT & Servicing Centre has replaced hundreds of turbos for all makes and models.
As standard practice when replacing any turbo, Basingstoke MOT & Servicing Centre will also remove the intercooler as well as the feed and return pipes and ensure that they are cleaned thoroughly and have no blockages. This is a key step that MOST garages will not be doing as part of a turbo replacement quote.
Not carrying out the above additional works can cause serious problems/damage to the new turbo, including possible engine failure. Always ensure any quotes you get has the added work included.
Don’t take the risk, get it done by the professionals at BMSC for affordable and fast turbo repairs. All turbochargers repairs come with a labour and parts warranty for your peace of mind.
