TROUBLESHOOTING

Turbocharger Installation

****IMPORTANT****

Prior to re-installing your new or newly rebuilt turbocharger you need to find and  repair the problem that caused the turbocharger to fail in the first place. Failure to do so will only result in additional failure that will not be warrantable.

CHANGE THE ENGINE OIL, OIL FILTER & AIR FILTER

Use only a type and grade of oil which is specified in the vehicle manufacturer's service manual. Oil additives should not be used unless specifically approved by the vehicle manufacturer. Clean and/or replace air filter.

THOROUGHLY CLEAN TURBO OIL FEED LINES

Remove and clean or replace lines if necessary. Many non-metal oil lines can have linings crack from movement on the inside that cannot be seen.

INSPECT INTAKE & EXHAUST SYSTEMS TO AND FROM TURBO

Check for and remove any foreign objects. Be very thorough, even small particles can cause severe damage when inducted under high speed turbo operation.

REMOVE & CLEAN TURBO OIL DRAIN TUBE

Ensure oil can properly drain through line; restricted drain lines are a leading contributor to turbo oil leaks. Make sure you have the proper oil drain line size for your application.

PRE-LUBE TURBOCHARGER

Pre-lube the turbocharger prior to first start up. With engine NOT running; add clean engine oil to the oil inlet of the turbo while turning the shaft by hand until oil comes out of the drain. Use of a squeeze bottle or pump can is recommended to expedite this process.

TURBO WARM-UP

Operate engine at low idle for at least 5 minutes or until normal operating temperature.
