A Master Automobile Technician Shares 5 Tips on Making Your Modern Turbo Engine More Reliable Long Term.

In this video I share with you 5 tips to prolong the life of your turbo engine and the turbo it has. These are simple easy things anyone can do to their modern turbo engine to make it last longer and not have any issues prematurely.

Also towards the end of the video I’ll share my thoughts on Turbo engine reliability when compared to a non-turbo engine.

I hope this video helps car owners get the most use out of the turbo engines without having issues early.

    A well maintained, non boosted, simple engine (single overhead cam or pushrod engine), will outlast a boosted engine almost without question. Less complexity.

    My Brother had a Ford Probe turbo that he made it to 210,000 miles with no problems and traded it for a new truck, after his probe hit 100,000 miles he stopped taking care of it and was very hard on it and did oil changes maybe every 15-20,000 miles, he even ran it dry on oil a few times…These new turbo vehicles are blowing up left and right.. I personally know several people that have had new vehicles blow up in the past 3-4 years with well under 100,000 miles…A coworker just blew her engine at 41,000 miles in her 2021 Sorento turbo.. I think the newer engines are total garbage for the most part sadly… Great video- lots of great info…

    Makes me glad the turbo in my car sits at the front of the engine getting all that air going through the radiator.

    How about the new cars which have turbo and auto start & stop engin (for a little bit of saving fuel}?

    Wow. I was hesitant about a turbo vehicle during our last car purchase, and after viewing this, am damned happy I used my 80s brain and opted against it. Sure, you might get 100k miles before having to replace the turbo, and I drive like a grandma anyway, but oil usage from normal use, shortened oil change intervals, and potential for a clogged air filter in our Arizona dust would all have been nonstarters had I known previously. Glad I chose old school and went with the Subaru Forester. Looks great next to my 2015 Sienna (that replaced my 2001 Sienna.) I keep salivating over the new hybrid Siennas when I take mine in for servicing. My time will come. Thank you, Car Care Nut, for this channel – can't get enough of it. You are doing a great service to the non-mechanic car geeks out there who have found you.

    Number one thing to do is check your oil every 500 miles and add. I change at 3k full syn. Treat the car like a horse. Just short bursts of speed.

    I have an NX350. In eco mode it basically doesn’t use the turbo. So just start it up and put it in eco mode for the warm up then switch to normal or sport or sport+. When you are a few mins from your destination switch back to eco mode. 😎
