You can check the bearings without taking the turbo off. Just take off the intake pipe on the turbo and check the play in the turbo shaft. Move it up and down as well as back and forth. There should be minimal movement.

You can also turn the shaft with you fingers and listen for any strange noises, rubbing, etc. All of which would be signs of damage. The turbo should spin freely and silently.

Good luck!

I have a 2000 ford f-250 7.3l turbo diesel but the turbo doesnt work . What i have to do?

Its quite an old vehicle so most probably turbo has gone. Go to any good mechanic and he will be able to diagnose the issue in your turbo by taking it apart. Most of the time some normal servicing of turbo that require some change of components in it makes the turbo as good as new one.

Problem with the Subaru Outback 2008 diesel Low power at low RPM before turbo starts working. Difficult to drive the car on mountain roads where you have to shift from third to second gear, often the...

the turbo is a variable vane type
that means that there are vanes in the exhaust housing that redirects the exhaust gas flow onto the turbine blades to get extra boost at low rpms
those vanes are controlled by an actuator and vacuum hose from a sensor
the hoses get brittle from the heat and fails , the vanes can rust up and seize or the actuator doesn't get the message from the sensor
run the fault codes first , then take it to an accredited turbo professional shop for a proper diagnosis

Can i you drive without turbo on saab 9-5 2000

No. Turbo charged engines have been designed to have the turbo. The turbo uses exhaust gas to spin a dual air compressor to push additional air into the intake, without it the car probably won't even run. There are numerous electronics monitoring pressures and temperatures. Sorry turbo has to be fixed for car to run properly.

Can i put a turbo on a 96 volvo 850 GLT

The silly answer is: Of course! You can do anything with enough time and money. Take it apart, put in dished pistons to get the compression ratio down to where it will tolerate boost. Spend a kings ransom on parts to mount the turbo and manage the engine.
The smart answer; No! It makes no sense, sell it and buy the turbo flavour. They are actually fairly cheap, way less than building it and you get all the upgrades that come with the turbo option.

Hope this helps :-)

My turbo went bad

It will be cheaper to replace the turbo as you would have to change too much to not run turbo, Your car is set up to run turbo so will run lower compression than non turbo version meaning it will feel pretty guttless without it. i hope this helps.
