Remove two capscrews (3) and lockwashers (4), securing oil drain line (5) to turbocharger. Disconnect line (5)
from turbocharger and remove gasket (6); discard lockwashers (4) and gasket (6).
Remove four capscrews (7), nuts (8), lockwashers (9), and flatwashers (10), securing turbocharger (11) to
exhaust manifold. Remove turbocharger and stainless steel gasket (12); discard lockwashers (9) and gasket
Cover all openings.
The following inspection procedure is recommended for systematic failure analysis of a suspected turbocharger failure.
This procedure will help to identify when a turbocharger has failed, and why it has failed so primary cause of failure can
be corrected. Proper diagnosis of a "non-failed' turbocharger is important for two reasons. First, identification of a "non-
failed" turbocharger will lead to further investigation and repair of the cause of a performance complaint. Second, proper
diagnosis eliminates unnecessary expense incurred when a "non-failed" turbocharger is replaced. Seven recommended
inspection steps, (refer to FIGURE 3-25) which are explained in detail in following paragraphs, are:
Compressor Housing Inlet and Compressor wheel.
Compressor Housing Outlet.
Turbine Housing Inlet.
Turbine Housing Outlet and Turbine wheel.
External Center Housing and Joints.
Internal Center Housing.
Turbo Bench Test.
To enhance turbocharger inspection, an inspection chart (TABLE 3-3) can be used that lists
inspection steps in the proper order and shows potential failure modes for each step. Check off
each step as you complete inspection and note any problems.
