Turbo Repairs
Turbo repairing or turbo reconditioning is getting more common in modern vehicles throughout Northern Ireland and Ireland, the variety of vehicles which need turbo reconditioning seem to range from BMW 320d to Peugeot 308 1.6 HDI At Hagans Autos, we offer a turbo reconditioning service for BMW, Peugeot, Ford, Citroen and more which will repair your turbo to brand new before you decide on how you're going to get your turbo repaired the first thing is to give you a basic introduction into how a turbo works.. The wasted exhaust gases from your engine pass through the variable vanes and begin spinning the turbine, this in turn spins the turbine shaft. On the front end of the turbo is a Compressor wheel which is located in the compressor housing, as the turbine shaft begins to spin so does the compressor wheel, the compressor wheel compresses the air being drawn in by the engines induction and sends it through the inter-cooler. The inter-cooler will cool down the air and sends it on to the engine cylinders for combustion, the purpose of the inter-cooler is to cool the air which makes it more dense there for creating more space in the inter-cooler for even more air.

Here are some examples of how vehicles can suffer from turbo failure. Lets look at bmw models such as the 320d and 330d, these vehicle have a modern turbo diesel engine which is fitted with a EGR system (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) and also a dpf system (Diesel Particulate Filter). Next you have what is called crankcase ventilation, this basically means a small percentage of combustion gas will escape past the piston rings in the engine and get into the engine oil.Theses gases are vented back into the engines induction system via the crankcase breathing system so in theory they never stay in the crankcase long enough to contaminate the oil. The problem with this is, this process occurs constantly when the engine is running and eventually the oil gets contaminated to the point where it can no longer lubricate the turbo. The dpf system will run a timed regeneration of the system, when this is happening more diesel than the normal operating amount is injected into the cylinder at each injection stroke until it has finished the regeneration, the problem with this is some of the extra diesel can escape past the piston rings and contaminate the engine oil. When you combine this with poor servicing then the engine oil will degrade very quickly which means the turbo on your Bmw 320d and 330 M sport will fail.

Now lets look at another vehicle which is well known for its turbo problems, Peugeot 307 1.6 HDI and 407 1.6 HDI. Turbo failure is very common on the Peugeot 1.6 HDI engine in fact it is so common we have devised our remedy to prevent future turbo problems once you have the turbo repaired. Remove oil sump from bottom of engine, wash it out and thoroughly dry it, replace the main oil pick up pipe which bolts onto the bottom of the oil pump, there is a wire mesh type filter inside the pickup pipe which can get blocked up very easily, refit the sump. Fit new oil feed pipes and oil return pipes going to the turbo as they are probably blocked up with gunge, remove all breather pipes and clean them out, replace all crankcase breather filters, they are normally on top of the rocker cover or on the air box. Remove and clean out the oil filter housing, refit it and fit a new oil filter, fit the reconditioned turbo and fill the engine with oil. This is a brief outline into what needs done, the actual work its self is much more involved than we have stated.

Other symptoms of turbo failure would be loss of power, this can be caused by a number of things, a split intake hose which would create a whistling noise (not to be confused with a whining noise). If the waste gate was to stick open this would cause the exhaust gas to rush straight down the exhaust manifold and not turn the turbine, therefore the compression side of the turbo is not making any boost pressure. Variable vanes can also stick due to a build up of exhaust carbon in the variable vane chamber, Variable vanes operate by allowing exhaust gas to pass through them and spin the turbine at variable speeds, if these vanes are stuck in any way then they will not spin the turbine correctly or in some cases not spin it at all. In most cases if you are experiencing loss of power then the turbo will need to be repaired.

Now lets assume your turbo is blown, what do you do? Take your car to the main dealer so they can replace your turbo with a new one and simply throw your old one in the bin. Well if you have a second mortgage on your home then you can probably afford to do that. The next option is to have the turbo repaired, turbo repairs is much more affordable alternative than going to the main dealer, we offer a turbo repair service that will repair your turbo to new, your original turbo will be striped down and cleaned then all parts replaced so your are left with a completely reconditioned turbo, we also offer brand new turbos and all of our work comes with a 6 month warranty.
