Question about 1999 Volvo S80
A repair tech told me I needed to replace both turbos in my volvo s80. He wants to charge me $3,600 for this-I think he is exaggerating the damages to make money. I have the manual for the car, and he kind of told me one turbo is ok after I told him I was taking the car back, and I think the other just needs to be cleaned and the seals replaced. A turbo is essentially an intake tube with no moving parts, right? How could it go "bad"? I don't think replacing the whole assembly is necessary -whats your professional opinion? I think I can do this myself and save tons of money. I may try to find a used turbo if it needs replacing.
Do not put on a used one,yes it has precession moving parts and if you did not now that do not try to replace it yourself/why did it fail, are you shore its bad ,most fail because of lack of oil changes or correct type oil ,make shure you fix the complete problem
