How to Know When Your Turbo Needs Replacing

A Turbo is a turbine-driven, forced induction device used to harness the waste exhaust gases emitted from an engine. It forces more air into the cylinders helping the engine produce more power.  When air is compressed, the oxygen molecules are packed closer together which increases the amount of fuel due to the added air. Manufacturers commonly use turbochargers in trucs, car, train, aircraft, and construction-equipment engines. 

The importance of a turbo is to improve the engine’s efficiency by increasing the density of the intake of gas, thereby allowing more power per engine cycle so when it is damaged or isn’t functioning properly, you need to get it replaced. Here are some factors to look out for to see if you need a turbo replacement:
