Today we have Range Rovers in our workshop so I tough it will be worth to write few words about it. We are specialists not only in BMW, we love to work on Range Rovers & Land Rovers. We know that owners of these cars sometimes love it more than family so we developed few unique techniques that allows to replace turbochargers without removing body.
We do not remove body
Doing so we avoid problems with suspension, ABS, brakes, park sensors and other stuff that must be “touched” while removing body. This makes job a bit more tricky but it’s way safer for your car.
How do you know if your vehicle have an turbo failure?
Check engine warning lights (eg. ENGINE SYSTEM FAULT / RESTRICTED PERFORMANCE) – On most modern cars, the computer diagnostics will pick up turbo faults and the check engine light will come on. Of course, the check engine light doesn’t just cover turbo failure, and you will need to do some further checks to see what kind of engine problem you have.
A smoking exhaust – If the turbo housing has cracked, or the internal seals have blown, oil will start to leak into your exhaust system. As this burns off, it produces a distinctive blue/grey smoke, which will probably become more apparent as the engine revs increase just following an idle situation.
Power loss – If you notice that your turbocharged vehicle is accelerating more slowly than usual, or isn’t capable of reaching the speeds it once could, this may be a sign that your turbo is failing.
The boost gauge – Some turbocharged vehicles are fitted with a boost gauge, which lets you know how much boost your turbo is producing (you can also fit one to your car if desired). If your boost gauge isn’t going up as much as it used to, then there is a good chance your turbo is in need of repair.
A loud whining noise – Often, a failing turbocharger will make a loud, distinctive noise when under boost – a bit like a dentist’s drill or police siren if compressor wheel damaged. If you start to hear this noise from your engine, it’s definitely time to have it checked out!
