Question about 2004 Subaru Forester
Can anyone give me a good reason for my 2004 subaru forester to be blowing turbos at a rate of 1 every 25,000 miles. I have 105,000 miles on the car and installing my 4th turbo??????
There are a few different things that will cause you to destroy turbos. It is very important that when you change the turbo you also change the mesh filter inside of the banjo bolt in the oil feed line to the turbo. This filter tends to get filled with sludge if you are not changing the oil enough, using poor quality oil, or if your turbo has gone bad, metal get stuck in this filter. Also make sure there is no metal pieces left in the oil feed line or any where else in the system.
You may also want to look into getting a turbo timer. This will give the turbo adequate time to cool down after driving, reducing the chance of warping the turbo.

Oil supply to the turbo is somehow less than adequate. Do you change the oil every 3000 miles? Does the filter get changed when the oil is changed? Maybe a line is crushed?
