BMW X5 Turbo Reconditioning

Ok let me guess, the turbo on your bmw X5 has failed or it has started to whistle and you are now looking for a reconditioned turbo for you bmw X5, At Bmw turbo reconditioning we can offer you a Bmw turbo reconditioning service for your Bmw X5.

The main cause of BMW turbo failure is the condition of the engine oil, a diesel engine will produce a lot of soot like gases which make there way into the oil via the piston rings in the engine. Theses gases are vented back into the engines induction system via the crankcase breathing system so in theory they never stay in the crankcase long enough to contaminate the oil. The problem is this process occurs constantly when the engine is running and eventually the oil gets contaminated to the point where it can no longer lubricate the turbo, once this happens then the bearings in the turbo start breaking apart which causes the compressor blades to spin of center, this will cause the turbo to whistle, Bmw X5 suffer from this problem a lot and its always good to repair it once you here the turbo whistle.

Now that you know the cause of your BMW turbo failure lets look at some prevention methods you can put into practice once you have got the turbo repaired on your BMW. The main thing you need to address is the engine oil,(ie) the condition of it and how long its been in there. BMW recommend using long life oil which is not due to be changed at about 12,000 mile intervals, the problem with this is the oil is constantly getting bombarded with crankcase gases creating soot particles and leading to sludge, the only way to prevent this is to ignore the long service intervals and change the oil and filter every 6000 miles.
