SOURCE: location of engine thermostats on 2003 ch2500hd turbo diesel

Check this location.
Between the alternator and A/C compressor, on the top. The other thermostat with vent holes goes toward the rear of the engine.
I believe the temp ratings are different for each.
Let engine cool before working on it.
Clean up an spilled radiator fluid. It will destroy pets liver in 24 hours if they drink it.

I got a tata 407 turbo but the performance is poor it also smokes black and the fuel is black can some please help


Best I can tell this is a diesel truck? I know diesel, but
depending on age could be injectors, possibly Diesel injection pump hopefully not. The fuel is black? Someone is putting old engine lubricating oil in the fuel tank. It will increase the problem of black smoke. It may also have a bad smell because of the engine oil. If the turbo is not spinning properly (high pitched whine) the bearings may be bad and it's not getting enough air into the engine. This would also explain the smoke problem. Take it to a Diesel specialist!

What is the proper oil for the car 2005 CHEVROLET SILVERADO 2500 HD V8-400ci 6.6L DIESEL TURBO


It will be a diesel oil only, with a viscosity rating of 15w-30 or 20w-50 depending on the ambient temperature of your area. The brand is immaterial but it has to be diesel oil to have the ingredients needed to run a turbo. Oil used in a petrol engine will not be suitable for this application.

Jaguar x 2.0 Diesel Problem no power alot of black smoke coming out as you drive , now i have oil on rad and all over battery


run fault codes and look for EGR valve and pcv valve faults. Black smoke is unburnt diesel so it may be the injectors need attention. If it is a turbo then check the oil lines to the turbo and check turbo operation as it may not be producing air pressure for the engine.

Need to know if it is ok to run syn oil with the 1.8 turbo


yes perfectly ok ,i would use a turbo diesel oil thats suitable for diesel and petrol engines and the cheapest one at that then change oil every 6000 miles with a oil filter every third oil change ,Do not spend money on expensive boy racer market oil use what the trade uses something like shell rotella and do not be fooled by fancy adverts like liquid engineering and all that stuff these fancy long life oils cause more engine failures than any cheap oil which is changed at regular intervals to prevent a build up of internal clagg inside the engine

My toyota 3C turbo diesel engine the turbo compressor is flooding of oil . I can.t trace where it is coming from That is why I am searching service manual for this turbo charger. 12ct


Hi,

If your turbo housing is getting flooded with oil the it can only come from the shaft seal on the inside of the turbo.

You will need to remove it and replace the shaft seal.

I have a diesel turbo and i want to put it on my ford


There is more to supercharging an engine than just putting a turbo charger on it. Fuel delivery will need to be adjusted. A different cam shaft, valves and maybe pistons.
You will probably need a larger radiator to get rid of the additional heat. The additional horse power and torque will destroy the stock transmission and differentials so you will need to replace with bigger.
Oil should be tapped off just after the oil filter. There is probably a plug somewhere close. Be careful not to starve the rest of the engine for oil. May have to put a oil pressure gage at the end of the oil gallery to monitor minimum oil pressure.
Are you sure you want to "turbo" this engine?

What type of engine oil is used for a diesel


go to any auto parts store, like an auto zone and tell them what you are driving. They have a data base which will guarantee that you get the exact oil that you need.

I use Mobil Delvac 1 ESP 5W-40 , a fully synthetic supreme performance heavy duty diesel engine oil that helps extend engine life while providing long drain capability and potential fuel economy for modern diesel engines operating in severe applications. Mobil Delvac 1 ESP utilizes state-of-the-art technology to deliver exceptional performance in modern low emission engines, including those with Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and Aftertreatment systems with Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF’s) and Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOC’s). Therefore we believe it will be a good oil for the high mileage vehicles with the proper care for your vehicles as recommended by your manufacturers' guidelines.

My 2000 diesel 2.o freelander propshaft was recently repaired. The turbo has suddenly failed sending oil all over the engine. 1st there was a big cloud of black smoke. Engine revved very high. refused to...


Hi ,
Not easy this one,when your turbo failed the oil feed to the turbo bearings continued to feed engine oil into the intake side(could not turn off),the engine is then Un-governed and free to rev way above maximum limit,it has then massively over heated, the oil treatments are unlikely to cause this problem ,usually down to not letting the Turbo "wind down " after driving,The best course of action is to replace the engine and turbo charger and have the induction pipes and intercooler properly cleaned ,there are no cheap fixes for this you were just unlucky.
