What is a turbocharger and how does it work?

A turbocharger is a type of air pump or compressor that helps to increase the horsepower of an engine. Sometimes referred to simply as a “turbo”, the device draws in air from the atmosphere, compresses it, and forces it into the engine. The fuel management system then matches the extra air input with additional fuel. This process yields higher peak horsepower than an engine can otherwise produce without a turbocharger. It is similar to a supercharger, but, where a supercharger runs on a belt connected to the engine’s crankshaft, a turbocharger has an internal turbine wheel that is powered by exhaust gasses exiting the engine.

How do I know if a turbocharger needs to be replaced?

If your engine is equipped with a turbocharger, you might notice the following signs that is failing

You sense a loss of engine horsepower and/or fuel efficiency

You hear a loud and harsh whining or siren sound coming from the engine when it is under a high load

You see excessive blue or black smoke coming from the exhaust pipe

Upon inspection, the spark plugs are fouled with oil
