New Turbochargers for 2001 Chevy 6.6L Duramax LB7

The turbocharger is a very important part within your 2001 Chevy 6.6L Duramax LB7 motor. A turbocharger provides the engine with extra performance and additional overall efficiency.

Before you go shopping for a new 2001 Chevy 6.6L Duramax LB7 turbocharger, though, there are some points you need to understand. The proper performance of the turbo system depends upon a variety of factors. Being familiar with how these variables influence the performance of the turbo can assist in staying clear of pricey repairs as well as unnecessary part replacements.

Just How 2001 Chevy 6.6L Duramax LB7 Turbos Function

Chevrolet turbochargers use exhaust gasses coming from the motor to turn the turbocharger and also the air compressor, which causes the turning of the air pump. A Chevrolet turbo’s turbine can rotate at rates as fast as 150,000 RPM — roughly 30 x more than the rate of a typical automobile engine. That means you will obtain improved horse power.

The temperatures inside the turbocharger of a 2001 Chevy 6.6L Duramax LB7 can rise to excessive levels, as a result of the fact that a turbo is attached to the exhaust. To control these temperatures within the turbocharger, some Chevrolet turbochargers come standard with intercoolers. An intercooler is simply an extra cooler that cools the air which comes from the turbocharger and runs through the engine.

If the turbocharger is not operating as anticipated, you might repairing or replacing it. You can get a wide selection of 2001 Chevy 6.6L Duramax LB7 turbochargers from Taylor Diesel Group to suit your requirements and also budget.

Caring For Your Chevrolet Turbocharger

Chevrolet turbos can be costly. You do not want to have it replaced extremely often. To avoid frequent replacement, you should take measures to safeguard it to make certain that it performs effectively and lasts as long as possible.

Right here’s a list of a few of the actions to shield your turbo from destructive wear and tear:

Replace Your Oil and Filter Routinely

Turbos include moving elements that rotate at extremely high speeds. They also function under extremely high temperatures and stress. It is very important, consequently, that they get an endless circulation of high-quality engine oil. To make sure your turbocharger always operates properly, we’d recommend changing your oil at least every three-thousand to five-thousand miles.

It’s also advisable to adhere to the manufacturer’s recommendations for lube oil type and weight.

Remember to Wait For Your Oil To Heat

Engine oil ends up being very viscous when it is cool, which results in a bad flow around the engine bay, exposing the moving components, turbo included, to higher risk of deterioration. So, how do you lessen this threat?

Whenever you intend to drive your vehicle when it is cool, you need to bear in mind the engine warm-up time. Be easy on the accelerator to prevent placing excessive pressure on the oil pump. You do not want to overwork the pump to distribute the cold oil through the engine.

Thick oil can not lubricate the moving components effectively, which can lead to detrimental issues in the turbo. It is a good idea to be gentle on the accelerator for a minimum of the initial 10 minutes of driving with a cool engine.

If you live someplace particularly cold, you might additionally think about having an oil pan heater installed.

Be Careful Not To Surpass The Limitations Of Your Turbocharger

It is imperative that you understand the limits of your vehicle’s turbocharger. Then prevent going beyond that limitation. Be gentle with the fuel pedal whenever you are operating your vehicle.

It is true that turbochargers undergo extensive testing and are made to last for many years. Nevertheless, being too aggressive with the accelerator can create stress on the turbocharger system and cause pricey repairs. On top of increasing the life-span of your turbo, gentle accelerator usage can also help boost diesel mileage.

When Passing, Don’t Forget To Down-Shift

A turbo can substantially raise your vehicle’s horsepower as well as torque. However, it is not a good idea to let the turbo manage 100% of the vehicle’s accelerative power. Downshifting when overtaking is necessary.

Whatever the passing situation, downshifting to a reduced gear can aid the turbo to last longer than it would if you count entirely on the turbo when overtaking.

Allow the Engine to Cool Off Before Shutting It Off

Turbos get very hot when they are spooling. If you turn the engine off immediately after getting to your destination, the remaining heat could cause your oil to boil inside the turbo system. This can, in turn, cause the build-up of soot deposits, which can result in rust as well as early engine wear.

Once you get to your destination, it is advisable to let the engine continue to run for a couple of minutes at idle to enable the turbo to cool so you can switch the engine off without overheating the engine oil.

Stay Clear Of Pushing the Accelerator Prior To Engine Shut Down

When the accelerator is pushed, the turbine within the turbo will begin rotating. When you shut the engine off, the oil that lubricates the internal parts of the turbocharger will stop flowing. But, the turbine will keep revolving.

This applies a lot of stress on the bearings, leading to rubbing and a rise in temperature that causes serious issues with the turbo. The very best way to minimize this danger is by allowing the engine to cool down for a little while before turning off the engine.

Some Final Advice

Chevrolet turbos do a fantastic job at boosting performance and promoting diesel economy. When your turbo starts to wear down, you’ll have to repair it or have it changed. Two significant problems can trigger your turbocharger to fail: leaks as well as blockages.

You will need a credible mechanic to examine your turbo for cracks and also ensure that the gaskets are functioning completely. Defective seals can cause your turbo to be ineffective when it pertains to forcing air into the engine.

Blockages, on the other hand, can be brought on by a buildup of soot deposits or other outside particles leading to too little air flow getting to the engine.

One more typical reason for turbocharger failure is typical wear. If you discover that your engine is lacking power and experiencing inadequate take-off power, or that you are adding more lube oil than normal, it could be smart to begin shopping for new Chevrolet turbos.

If you delay too long, the faulty turbo can wind up damaging your engine. You can find a variety of Chevrolet turbos at TaylorDiesel.com. Even if you are uncertain concerning the proper turbocharger for your engine, we have a group of specialists that will certainly help you choose the very best turbo for your specific requirements as well as budget.
