Default CHATROOM: Turbo Engine Oil

I didn't know that a turbo, wasn't a sealed unit. So does the motor oil also lubricate, the turbo? Or is there a seperate oil filler for the turbo? I remember working on a 06 impala, the idler pully was lubricanted by the oil pump..

Yes it is lubed by engine oil. You can see two lines from the oil cooler adapter to the turbo. There is no separate filter or oil filler (?). Read all about it:

On a turbo road car, using the engine oil is the best way to warm it quickly when cold and remove excess heat when warmed up through dissipation from the sump. It's routine on turbo-diesels and fine for gasoline road cars.

Track cars have different requirements in many respects.

Turbos are generally considered to be hard on oil and frequent oil changes are normal. My WRX used Mobil 1 and the changes were at 6000kms.

On performance cars definitely - on road cars then not so. my turbo-diesel can go 20,000 miles (30,000 km) between changes - and Mobil 1 can be used.

Your Subaru WRX needed frequent oil changes because it used a track variant of the engine - ordinary turbo Subarus have normal Subaru OCI.

Do you guys not use different oil across the pond? I would never leave oil in my diesel truck for more than 6k miles.

10-12k on oil changes on our 7.3 ford. Or at this point yearly. Changing it at 6K you are over doing it IMO. But that's your choice to.

The European Automobile Manufacturers Association (ACEA from the French) issue a set of Oil Sequences http://www.acea.be/images/uploads/fi..._Sequences.pdf which define different oils for different purposes. All brands of cars sold in Europe, not just those made here, define in the owners manual which ACEA grade is suitable for a specific engine.

This enables consumers and retailers to largely ignore the mineral/part-synthetic/full-synthetic debate although the oil chemists still need to know all about that.

We also use the US-originated SAE viscosity ranking in exactly the same way as anyone else which varies by local climate as well as the engine's requirement.

As a result, my owners handbook defines that my 2.2 CRDi turbo-diesel needs ACEA-C3 & SAE 5W-30 oil changed at 20,000 miles or 1 year whichever occurs first - so that's all I need to know - the fact that no part-synthetics meet that specification is irrelevant.

The US-originated API Service Classification is irrelevant in Europe although usually marked on oil sold here.

Australia and New Zealand adopt the ACEA standard voluntarily.

3106 miles ?? It would surely better to design a total loss system and just add a quart every 500 miles.
