Today in our workshop we have this Alfa-Romeo Giulietta 2.0 JTDM. This car came for inspection with very noisy sound and oil leak from turbocharger.
We have to know why oil is leaking, what is the reason. Also we have to inspect whole turbo system for eventual splits or damages.
We found that feed pipe was blocked by dirt that gets into oil through oil filter. This filter wasn’t changed since long time and this caused turbocharger failure. This shows how simple car maintenance can save a lot of money and time in future.
We stock hundreds reconditioned turbocharges. Lucky that we had this one too. We swapped it with old one and could begin with services.
We replaced air and oil filters for brand new. We drained old oil from engine, flushed it and then filled with brand new oil. Also we cleaned feed pipes and sump.
These steps must be done very carefully because new turbocharger must work in friendly environment to provide its best performance.
