A turbocharger is a forced induction system, which is responsible for bringing air into the combustion chamber of an engine. Turbochargers are powered by a vehicle’s exhaust gas. The exhaust gas spins the turbine wheel, one of the components within the turbocharger system, and the turbine wheel spins a compressor wheel. While spinning, the compressor wheel sucks in a large amount of dense, outside air and compresses it. Because the air is high in temperature, it needs to pass through an air cooler. In the cooler, the air lowers in temperature and gains even greater density before it enters the engine. Once in the engine, the compressed air allows more fuel to be added into the cylinder, and the engine burns the fuel more efficiently. In addition to installing turbochargers because they are fuel efficient and produce less CO2, many drivers use these systems to help their vehicles reach higher speeds.
If your turbocharger is acting strange, we invite you to bring it in for repair. Warning signs of impending turbocharger maintenance include a whining sound that grows louder at boost, the smell of burning oil, an excessive amount of smoke, and a noticeable decrease in power. A turbocharger may also be in danger of failing when it doesn’t receive enough lubrication, and improper lubrication can lead to carbon buildup. Likewise, small pieces of debris may make their way into the turbocharger and damage its components. If you notice or suspect any of these problems, let us help. Our staff is equipped with the right tools to repair your turbocharger. We will carefully inspect its components, identify the problem, and proceed with the repair process in order to get you back on the road with a fully functioning turbocharger.
