Very hard to get parts not to mention you dont have the expesive tools needed to rebalance it wich is 100% required. no auto mechanic i know or any local machine shop would have this eiher.i tried the same project some years ago and ended up sendind to a turbo rebuilder to get repaired. but an exchange unit is probably available.

I have a 2003 park ave turbo im wondering what type fluid or ? goes into the turbo i can see grease /oil leakage? around the exterior part

Hi the turbo is lubricated by the same oil which lubricates the rest of the engine. This oil ( under pressure ) lubricates the sealed bearing which the turbo spins on.
If you have oil around the hoses etc then there is a possibility the turbo bearing seals are leaking
and allowing oil to leak into the intake hose this oil usually softens the hoses and the oil contamination shows around the hose clamps etc.
I hope i have been of help to you with this problem.

2005 dodge 3500 5.9 cummins,it died driving down the road.will not start blows white smoke trying to start.oil leaking at back of turbo,checked turbo bearing seem fine.

You have a blown turbo.You have to replace the turbo the oil is going into the turbo and being recycled into the engine and being put into the cylinders if you keep driving it the way it is you will eventually blow the engine. It will high RPM and be running on oil it is called a runaway turbo. It will burn every ounce of oil in your engine in a matter of min utes and your engine will seize up before you know it.It is an exspensive part to replace but it is a very easy thing to change even for the most un mechanical person.Make sure you change your oil & filter at the same time because you will probably have diesel fuel in your oil as well.The bearing does not have to be bad in order for the turbo to be bad.

1992 pontiac bonniville ssei 3800 supercharger bearing has gone bad.did bearing parts go down into motor damaging cylinders?

It depends on the severity of the damage to the Turbo. It is not common for turbo bearings to damage an engine, since they are not normally made like regular bearings with rollers. It is however common for tiny bits of the rotor to sometime chip off and get into the intake as the . In most cases they are crushed and blown out as they are made of a very thin metal. Again, this usually only occurs when you ignore signs of a failing Turbo and continue to run the engine without repairing the problem. This could result in catastrophic Turbo failure and then mate you could be in some serious problems. Inspect the turbo vanes after you take it out , a little chipping on the edges is is OK

Loud humming noise coming from 03. Pt cruiser with turbo. You can only hear the sound when excelerating. When hooked up to the computer at the parts store it says something about the emissions. Any...

It appears that the bearing and seal on the turbine shaft of the Turbo have failed causing the noise of a worn bearing and oil leaking past the seal into the exhaust system. Continuing to drive it will eventually remove all oil from engine if not topped up. The Turbo needs repairing urgently before any more damage occurs.
Turbos get very hot during brisk driving and need to be allowed to cool down before turning off the engine to prolong bearing and seal life. It is recommended to allow engine to idle for at least three minutes before switching off to allow the circulating oil to bring turbo down to a reasonable temperature.

Oil goin it to my i need a new one or can i fix it thanks barry

Oil is supposed to go to the turbo charger to cool it and lubricate the bearing. But is is not supposed to leak out. Usually they leak when the bearing is starting to get too much wobble.
So you just change the bearing and seal.
Cost you about $25 for the parts, as long as you get them from a generic bearing dealer and not a car dealer. Easy to change. You might need a press though.

Passat 1.8t turbo problem

A bearing going bad. Do you follow turbo shut down procedures? If you don't have time to do this then my suggestion is installing a turbo timer to do this automatically. When you drive the car specially a high speed and need to shut down the engine is the worse thing you can do to your turbo. The impeller spins double the speed of sound and takes quite a while to slow down specially when you shut down the engine. At the same time it is shut down, oil pressure is no longer provided by the oil pump and cooking from extremely hot turbo assembly. The end product is oil carbonizing and clogging moving parts. The term is called coking. A turbo timer will keep your engine running when you remove the key from ignition and lock the vehicle for a programmable amount of time. This will help the turbo to spin dow while lowering the temperature critical for a longer servie life of your turbo charger.

Ford f350 makes grinding noise and hold uneven boost

you probably need new turbo. check oil supply to the turbo. grinding noise sounds like bearings in turbo are overheating do to lack of oil and slowing down the turbo. that explains the uneven boost press.

On my golf gti the turbo is squealing wen the boost kiks in and theres no power from the turbo what so ever, is it the bearings?

It could be the waste gate that controls the turbo boost. Check your lower inter-cooler tubing from the inter-cooler to the turbo just to double check and make sure it's all buttoned up. If it's the bearing, there would be lots of blue smoke from the tail pipe. Good luck and keep me posted.
