How Much is a Turbocharger Replacement?
“How much is a turbocharger replacement?” is a question we get hear a lot. If your turbocharger is acting strange, we invite you to bring it in for repair but be aware that there are a lot of other potential issues that can seem similar to a non-functioning turbocharger, and this problem seems to be misdiagnosed often.
Warning signs of impending turbocharger maintenance include a whining sound that grows louder at boost, the smell of burning oil, an excessive amount of smoke, and a noticeable decrease in power. A turbocharger may also be in danger of failing when it doesn’t receive enough lubrication, and improper lubrication can lead to carbon buildup. Likewise, small pieces of debris may make their way into the turbocharger and damage its components.
If you notice or suspect any of these problems, let us help. Our staff is equipped with the right tools to accurately diagnose your vehicle’s issue. If we determine that it is indeed your turbocharger, we will carefully inspect its components, identify the problem, and proceed with the repair process in order to get you back on the road ASAP.
Just remember, self-diagnosing based only on a few symptoms can lead to unnecessary parts replacement. Or you may replace the correct part, but overlook the issue that caused it to fail in the first place. This will lead to premature failure of the replacement part. To make sure you get the most value for your dollar, get your vehicle diagnosed by a professional and proceed from there with all the information you need to make an informed repair decision.
