Today we have our favorite Land Rover Range Rover Sport from 2008 with 3.6 TDv8 Engine. This car comes on recovery truck with both turbochargers failure. Car was diagnosed before as “FOREIGN OBJECT IMPACT”. But we had to do our inspection as well.
Because we must confirm what is the problem and find what was caused it we begin with inspection. When car is on the ramp it is much easier to check turbochargers health. And we found it. This time pre-diagnose was bull’s eye. Turbochargers has been damaged by foreign object impact.
We DO NOT lift body!
Many garages DO LIFT the body/ chassis while doing turbochargers replacement. This is not necessary and can cause many electrical faults, ABS, brakes, suspension problems in future.
We have developed very unique technique that allows us to replace turbochargers without lifting body! Doing so we are avoid problem with ABS, park, electric, brakes, suspension etc.

How do you know if your vehicle have an turbo failure?
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
