Mercedes V6 3.0l E350 Loss of Power/ EML/ White or Black Smoke P0299 P1239 Turbocharger Failed | Best Turbos - Turbochargers reconditioning and fitting.

Our technicians recently got to work on a Mercedes E350. This vehicle is a statement of power with a 3.0 litre V6 Garrett turbocharged engine, accompanied with the luxury and sophistication of true Mercedes engineering.

Upon drop-off, the customer informed us that she had been experiencing an extreme loss of power, which displayed the Engine Malfunction Light (EML) on the dashboard. We were able to carry out a physical inspection on this turbocharger, as it sits proudly right on top of the engine. As we removed the boost pipe we found that the shaft of the turbocharger wasn’t spinning at all, and it had completely seized.

As the turbocharger had no movement in it we were able to confirm that the oil wasn’t passing through the system correctly, which blocked the DPF as well.

With our services, we were able to fully recondition the turbocharger up to manufacturer quality. Through our process of stripping the parts down completely; then cleaning, sandblasting and glassing, as well as full professional balancing and actuator calibration, we have are celebrating 10 years of excellence for a reason!

We are proud to offer a 2-year warranty on both parts and labour used. This means all our responsibility lies in just one place! Check out the video we made for this job!
