Want to learn more about Turbocharger repairs in Bristol?

Read our short guide with information on costs, symptoms and more.

What does a turbocharger do?

A turbocharger is a helps to push more air into the engine to significantly boost engine performance. The system is powered by the exhaust gases coming from the engine which drive a turbine in the turbo to push more air into the engine. It helps to achieve a more efficient combustion, with normally more power for only a small increase in fuel consumption.

What does a turbocharger replacement involve?

A mechanic will come to assess the situation around the turbocharger. They will then remove and replace the old turbocharger as requested. The engine will be checked and the car taken will be taken for a test drive where required, with any adjustments being made after that.

Can I do a turbocharger replacement myself?

ClickMechanic can help get you a vetted and local mechanic to carry out the work. Just enter your postcode and your car's registration number at the top of this page and select the work needed to get an instant fixed price up front.

How do I know if my Turbo needs replacing?

Faulty turbochargers are not easily identified, the most obvious signs will be less power and a decreased fuel efficiency, emissions may also be worse. This will cost you a lot of money in the long term, as the car will be using more fuel, so it's important you get a qualified mechanic to repair it.

How long will a turbocharger replacement take?

On average a turbocharger replacement will usually take around 3 hours, but can take anywhere from 2 to over 4 hours. The time that the job takes will depend on a range of factors. For example, your vehicle's make and model, year, as well as other factors. Select your car at the top of this page for information on job time and cost for your vehicle through ClickMechanic.

How often should I replace a turbocharger?

As a vital component of many vehicles, it shouldn't need to be replaced for the lifetime of the vehicle. This doesn't mean it always lasts, but you shouldn't expect this part of your vehicle to need replacing. Only undertake this repair if your vehicle has been diagnosed with this issue by a professional mechanic.

Can you drive with a broken turbo?

Driving the vehicle with a broken turbo may lead to further complications and damage to engine. If you suspect there is any issue with your vehicle's turbocharger or there are concerns about its age or condition, book with a professional mechanic with immediate effect to get it checked and replaced if necessary.

What happens if my turbo breaks?

If your turbo breaks in your car, your engine will lose power and your car will go into "limp mode." This means that your car will only be able to go a very slow speed until you get it fixed.
