The Engine Gets a Boost (Turbocharged Engine Maintenance)

Posted June 23, 2019 11:46 AM

If someone told you that your vehicle could have the same power but with a smaller engine, wouldn't that sound like great idea? Just think, a smaller engine would save you money at the gas station and you'd still get the same horsepower.

The technology to do just that has been around for a long time. It's called a turbocharger.

Race cars and other performance vehicles have been using turbochargers for years. It gives them a power boost without the need of a bigger engine, saving them fuel and pit stops.

Automakers have offered turbo gasoline and diesel engines for years, but there were problems with durability. Plus drivers had to make some driving adjustments with the way turbos delivered power. Newer turbos, though, have been vastly improved, and manufacturers are including them in more models. For example, Jeep offers its 2019 Cherokee with a choice of two engines that each make about 270 horsepower. One is a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine and the other is a 6-cylinder conventional gasoline engine. The general rule of thumb is: the fewer the cylinders, the better the fuel economy.

A turbocharged vehicle uses a turbine that is turned by exhaust gas. That compresses air that goes into the engine, which then allows it to use more fuel per second, increasing power. One advantage of a turbo is that it is only engaged when the driver demands more power from the engine by stepping on the throttle harder.

One thing to remember, though, is that turbocharged engines have additional parts and are more complex. That means they can be more expensive to maintain. The upside? You'll likely save fuel.

Like any complex machine, it's important that you maintain your turbo vehicle so it will give you more years of service. Superior Auto Care technicians are trained to inspect and service the systems associated with a turbo engine. If you already drive a turbocharged vehicle, keep up your regular maintenance schedule to get the longest life and performance out of it.

Because of the advantages these powertrains offer, turbo engines are definitely here to stay.

    As a woman who knows not much about cars, I am always apprehensive about going to a repair shop, until my friend recommended me Brian's Complete Automotive repair shop. I was immediately satisfied with the quote I was given. I was able to get my car in the same day as the initial phone call and was returned by end of day. Not only was the repair fixed properly it was done in a friendly and timing matter. Thank you so much for renewing my faith in mechanics! Love this place! What a painless experience! Thanks guys! Yes, I would gladly recommend this business to a family and friends. Donna K.

    I looked everywhere for an honest mechanic with affordable prices and he was recommended to me by my friends. I was very happy with the service he did on my Volvo convertible and my moms Toyota. He was quick too and since I work not too far he drove me to work and when the car was ready he picked me up. 5 star service for sure! :)

    Miguel is absolutely incredible. I brought the car unannounced on Saturday and he happy began to inspect the car. He took the time to fully explain what was wrong with the car and offered same day work. I will be going to them for all repairs. Strongly recommend!!

Highly recommended.

    Called Miguel on a rear brake issue on my 2015 Ford Edge. Expecting I would have to make a appointment, he said to bring it over and he'd take a look at it. Long story short within 3 hrs I had new rear brakes and rotors and back on the road. Without a doubt, the best service at reasonable prices. I highly recommend this shop. Thanks again Miguel for your help.

    Miguel is amazing and one of the best mechanics we have ever worked with. He kept us updated throughout the process with texts and pictures. He finished the work very quickly. He went above and beyond to fix things like brake lights and window issues without charge. He was pleasant and easy to work with. We have a long history of used cars/mechanics and Superior exceeded expectations. Thanks Miguel, the world needs more mechanics like you.

    Unmatched customer service, timelineness, pricing, quality of repair, and honesty. Miguel and his staff work around the clock to diagnose and repair their customers cars. I?ve trusted Miguel with everything from a new transmission to tires to oil changes; you name it, they do it. He?s even worked in my out of town sisters vehicle on the weekend short notice. 100% trustworthy and not a pushy salesman mechanic. I won?t take my vehicles to anyone else.
