[DML] Re: BAE Turbo Documentation

The turbo timer and the pressure lubricator systems were necessary
before the improved synthetic oils were available. Coking is not the
big problem it used to be if you use a branded synthetic oil and
change it often. You should also let the motor run for a moment before
shutting it off on a hot day right after a high speed run. Newer
turbos have their bearings water cooled to also help prevent coking.
Turbos do not last forever. The outlet for the motor intake should be
checked regularly for evidence of oil leakage past the turbo seals,
that is one of the first signs that the turbo is in need of service.
Besides the bearings wearing and the rotors not turning you also need
to make sure the wastegate moves freely. If it gets stuck open you
won't get any boost and if it gets stuck closed you will overboost the
