It is extremely important that you read the enclosed fitting instructions before fitting this turbocharger / cartridge. Failure to do so will result in premature failure and will be declined in the event of a warranty claim.
The PSA 1.6HDI, DV6TED4 engine is a highly sophisticated low emission, high power diesel unit. It is used in many different applications; Citroen, Ford, Mazda, Mini, Peugeot and Volvo. Due to the engine being clean and powerful, it is designed to operate at high temperatures, which demands the very best lubricants. These lubricants must be maintained in peak condition and PSA have fitted an in-line oil filter to the turbo and an integral oil cooler/oil filter to this engine to ensure this. Reports in the field indicate that if the engine has been operated with the oil level below normal limits, this may potentially cause a high concentration of carbon in the oil. This may then lead to blockage of the in-line filter, oil cooler and main oil filter, which will eventually bring on premature turbo failure. The vacuum pump may also suffer from this same type of contamination. However, due to its high operating speeds (230,000 revs per minute) the turbo will usually be the first to show signs of damage. This can happen from 30,000 miles onwards if the oil level and correct oil change intervals/procedure have not been adhered to. Experience to date suggests that the carbon build up in this application is particularly difficult to remove. To try to eliminate the potential for further turbo failure, the following MUST be undertaken by the garage, in addition to the normal recommended turbo fitting instructions:
In some instances even after carrying out these instructions not all of the carbon/sludge deposits will have been removed, resulting in turbocharger / cartridge failure. In these instances the turbocharger /cartridge will NOT be covers by the warranty as the failure is not due to a faulty component but failure due to external factors.
