TurboKits.com offers inspection, repair, rebuilding, balancing, and upgrade services for most OEM Automotive, light Diesel, light Industrial, and Ag Turbochargers as well as many Performance applications for them through our trusted turbocharger rebuild partner. They have QUALITY built into their entire turbo rebuilding process using only OEM spec parts or better.....thinking that matches up perfectly with ours. There are many factors that contribute to turbo failure and we can aid in diagnosing possible operating issues that may have caused the unit’s demise. Many times a standard rebuild and balance will bring a turbo back to life but there are some cases where a replacement of “hard parts”, such as a shaft, wheel, or housing may be required. In the unfortunate situation where additional components are necessary to complete the repair, a full quote is offered prior to completion of the work. With our partners experience in thousands of successful turbo rebuilds, we can offer you the most cost effective options for repair. In most cases, rebuilding or repairing your existing unit is cheaper and sometimes faster than sourcing a new replacement. If you have questions about this service or would like to know if your turbo can be rebuilt, please call us at 860-676-2929 or e-mail sales@turbokits.com

Common causes of turbo failure:

  • Restricted Oil Feed Lines/Filters: Starves turbo for oil, prevents proper turbo bearing lubrication. Kinks in the feed line can restrict oil flow
  • Internal Engine Bearing Failure: Metal/debris shavings contaminates oil and causes scoring of turbo bearings/internal turbo components
  • Underperforming Oil Pump: The pump is overworked as it tries to pump oil through the clogged filters. Even when new turbo and filters are installed, limited oil pressure is still an issue
  • Improper Oil Drain: Oil return line is kinked, clogged, or restricted and not allowing oil to return to the motor from the turbo
  • Improper Use of Sealants/Gaskets: Blockage to oil passages can be caused from improper sealer used in feed/drain fittings, pieces of gasket material can break off and enter turbo
  • Dirty Air Inlet: Reduce air supply to turbo can increase EGTs and excessive heat will destroy/crack turbo and potentially create a vacuum to draw oil through seals in compressor housing
  • Excessive Fuel: Leads to higher EGTs and can cause warping/cracking and bearing failure
    Improper Engine Shut Down: Rapid shut down of a hot engine will not allow oil to properly drain from the turbo and heat to adequately dissipate from the exhaust housing.
  • Engine/Turbo Intake Debris: Broken engine components (pistons, rings, valves), nuts, bolts, dirt, foreign material can damage compressor and turbine wheels, cause turbo failure this is called FOD (Foreign Object Damage)
  • Clogged Engine Crankcase Vent/PCV Valve: Builds excessive engine crankcase pressure and does not allow oil to drain (blows out turbo seals)
  • Engine Blow-by: Causes excessive crankcase pressure and will not allow turbo oil to drain
  • Excessive Oil Pressure: Too much oil pressure causes oil seals to fail
  • Improper Feed/Drain Hose Sizing: Oil cannot feed or drain adequately

How to properly identify your turbocharger and other turbo rebuild service information:
TurboKits.com services, upgrades, and sells rebuild kits for A LOT of turbochargers. The best way to help us help you is to provide ALL of the information off the ID tag on your turbocharger upon initial contact. We recommend taking a clear picture of the identification plate and e-mailing it to sales@turbokits.com. Please also include the year, make, and model of the vehicle and the level of service you desire; rebuild kit, rebuild service, new CHRA or bearing housing, or, you’d like to upgrade your turbo to meet your goal of “X” HP efficiency. Our staff will happily research options and respond with pricing! If you don’t have the means of balancing your turbo locally, a rebuild kit may not be your best option.

Identification Tags will vary based off the manufacturer, but most turbocharger name plates can be found attached to the bearing housing itself, or etched into the compressor housing on a flat surface.

Here are some examples thanks to our friends at Garrett Motion:

Please note that we request ALL numbers on the tag as in some cases, the model # may carry across multiple variations of production, but the serial # will identify the exact unit you have.

Before sending your turbo to us, we’ll need to collect the initial payment for the work requested as well as the return cost of shipping. An e-mail will be sent to you with a work order number along with shipping instructions so we know who the turbo belongs to and what needs to be done to it once it arrives at our rebuild center.

When shipping your turbo, we request you play close attention to your packaging. Bagging your turbocharger then boxing it in a durable cardboard box with dense foam insulation is the ideal way to ship it. We recommend the box allow for 2-3” of clearance around the turbo to allow for ample protection and padding. If you don’t have dense foam packaging available, still place the turbocharger in a thick plastic bag and surround it with clean rags or densely packed newspaper. Please DO NOT use packing peanuts! If shipping a supercore or CHRA, ensuring you have securely wrapped the wheels is most import. Dense bubble wrap secured with tape is a fantastic option to protect those expensive, delicate components.
Once your turbocharger is packed securely, selecting a carrier that offers a tracking # and insurance on your shipment is important. PLEASE insure your expensive turbocharger for replacement value and e-mail the tracking # to us once you have it! Any additional information you can provide us about your turbocharger and shipment will save us both time and simplify your repair.
