If you’re noticing that your car isn’t running as quickly as it used to, or it isn’t responding well to your input, then it may be turbo failure. Additionally, if you’ve noticed a change in speed or are struggling to maintain high speed, we’d recommend booking in for a service.
The turbocharger helps to quieten the engine by muffling the sound of air intake. If you’re noticing more noise coming from the engine, it’s a potential sign of turbo failure.
We recommend a check up to help identify the source of the noise. If it’s an issue with the turbo, it may need replacing or repairing to get your car back on the road.
If there’s any potential damage or cracks in your turbo, then it may start leaking oil into the exhaust system. If this happens, you will notice distinctive blue or grey smoke coming from your car.
If not addressed exhaust emissions will continue to get worse and could lead to the engine seizing.
The most common sign of an issue with your turbo is the check engine light. Whilst you may want to ignore it, you’ll likely save a lot of money in the long run by addressing the issue sooner rather than later.
