What is a Turbo?

An engine needs to mix fuel and air to run, Turbos force more air into the cylinder which can be mixed with more fuel to create more power. Turbos run at high speeds which means they work under huge pressure and temperatures and can sometimes go wrong. There could be many reasons why you’re experiencing turbo problems such as

  • Low oil levels causing low oil pressure
  • Foreign objects entering and damaging the internals of your turbo
  • DPF blockages
  • General wear and tear

If you believe you have an issue with your turbo In Town Automotive can diagnose and repair this for you, we use OE quality parts and give you the option to split your bill over 4 easy payments.

Why Would You Need to Get a Turbo Replacement?

If you’re driving with a damaged or faulty turbo, you’ll likely experience a loss of power, or in severe cases, your engine could seize entirely. Whilst you can still drive your vehicle with a faulty turbo, it’s not recommended to do so.

A clear indicator of turbo failure is that your vehicle will start generating a lot of smoke. To ensure your turbo lasts as long as possible and is performing, we recommend regular turbo checks with an expert - book your appointment at In Town Automotive, today.

Depending on the age of your turbo, if you’re noticing a loss in performance, it may be time to consider a turbo replacement.

As experts in turbo replacement, In Town Automotive’s Northampton workshop can provide premium turbo parts, servicing and replacement at affordable prices, getting you up and running again in no time.

When Should You Get a Turbo Replacement for Your Car?

Typically, turbos are made to last the lifetime of your car. However, they can wear down over time, depending on how you drive. If you push your car to the limit, or there was an issue with the model or installation, you may be due a replacement.

If you suspect turbo failure, book an In Town Automotive appointment for turbo replacement as soon as possible. To help you identify this issue, here are some signs that your turbo isn’t functioning properly:

Losing Power

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.

Loud Engine

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.

Exhaust Smoke

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.

Check Engine Light

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.

Although the check engine light doesn’t always indicate turbo failure, it’s always best to get a professional opinion. Speak to the experts at In Town Automotive to diagnose the source of the problem.
