What is a turbocharger and how is it built?
Construction and operation of a turbocharger
Oxygen, which, thanks to the turbocharger, enters the combustion chamber in the engine, contributes to the reduction of fuel consumption, which significantly affects the economy of driving. Lower fuel consumption also means fewer harmful compounds escaping from the exhaust into the atmosphere – that is why turbochargers also have a positive effect on the environmental friendliness of vehicles.
How to extend the service life of a turbocharger?
- use of the oil recommended by the vehicle manufacturer;
- regular oil change with a new one with full protective properties;
Can the turbocharger be regenerated?
Turbochargers can undergo regeneration, which is often better than expected. A regenerated turbocharger, i.e. an element that has been thoroughly cleaned of particles and impurities or contains the replaced components, will work exactly like a turbocharger in a new vehicle.
Unfortunately, regeneration of a turbocharger is not always possible, mainly due to its condition. Too much damage may render the part unsuitable for regeneration. Nevertheless, it is always worth trying, because this way of restoring the vehicle to its optimal technical condition is cheaper than replacing the element with a new one.
