Sometimes the sealant or silicone could cause significant damage into the turbocharger, a blocked push, preventing proper oil flow and necessary.

The turbocharger oil pipe is not as ordered, fitted with new gaskets or seals. Instead, attempts are made to seal the oil line to the turbocharger with sealant (or in the worst case with silicone).

Sometimes the ‘grease line’ sticks to the central body of the turbocharger with a liquid sealant, which if not used with the necessary precautions and following recommendations may end up getting into the inlet of the turbocharger oil, clogging oil ducts inside the bearing housing and irreversibly damaging the bearings of the radial and axial bearings.


The rear wall of the turbine starts crack it because the temperature is so hot.
The piston ring is damaged and broken rings thereof

This irreversible damage could have been avoided if it had been working properly, in the basic installation instructions that accompany each turbocharger indicated clearly and specifically that the seals must be replaced with new ones like hoses grease while the turbo.

When connecting the oil pipes avoid using liquid sealant!
