About Turbo Chargers

The Audi turbo charger boosts the flow of compressed air and in turn increases the flow of fuel, into the combustion chamber of the engine, improving the performance of the engine, which effectively enables the car to go faster. 

The Audi turbo charger attaches to the exhaust and the engine and is driven by a turbine powered by gas from the exhaust. The exhaust leaves the engine and enters the housing of the turbine which causes the turbine wheel to rotate. The power of this rotation turns a shaft connected to a compressor, forcing the compressor to spin. As the compressor rotates it sucks in clean air and forces it through into the combustion chamber, providing extra power to the engine.

The Audi turbo charger increases the engine's fuel efficiency and provides significantly more power than the engine alone, while helping to reduce CO2 emissions. It has an important part to play, therefore, in the overall performance of the engine, boosting the performance of the engine, enabling it to work as efficiently and effectively as possible.

Problems can occur with the Audi turbo charger and there are a variety of issues that car owners may come across. A build-up of dirt and carbon can cause damage to the internal parts of the Audi turbo charger which prevents it from performing properly and can, if left unattended, lead to severe damage to the unit. To avoid a build-up of unwanted dirt and carbon on the Audi turbo charger ensure you regularly filter and change the oil. Issues can arise if unwanted debris such as stones and twigs from the road enters the turbo charger which can cause damage to the compressor wheels and turbine. This can harm the overall performance of the Audi turbo charger. The turbo charger housing can crack which can lead to unwanted oil leaking into the exhaust system, causing the exhaust to smoke. General wear and tear will naturally take its toll on the Audi turbo charger. It is subjected to extreme heat and can be susceptible to damage caused by faults in other systems such as the exhaust and fuel intake. If there is a fault with the Audi turbo charger the Check Engine light will illuminate indicating, you need to investigate further.  If you are experiencing a loss of power, smoking exhaust, or a loud, shrill noise coming from the turbo charger, these are signs there are issues and you will need to have it looked at by a professional. When replacing the Audi turbo charger it is important that you buy one that is compatible with the make and model of your car.

Audi trivia

  • Audi was the first manufacturer to use four-wheel drive cars in the World Rally Championship. Consistent wins meant that the WRC soon allowed all cars to use the technology.
  • The Audi R8 is made very unusually, and only 20 are rolled out of their factory on any given day. That’s because it's considered an honour to work on this model, and only the top 120 Audi employees are qualified enough.
  • The Olympics Committee tried to sue Audi in 1995, claiming that the four rings logo was too similar to the Olympic rings. Audi easily won.
  • The Audi Type K was the first car with left-hand steering as standard. This was one of Audi’s most popular cars, especially in Germany.
  • Not happy with just making one of the first automated cars, Audi even built and raced one in the Pikes Peak Hill race, setting records for speed even without a driver.
