What happens when a turbo blows on a diesel?

It is important to remember that when your turbo fails, the pieces will fall into the intercooler and the oil seals will fail as well. This oil is actually good for the engine, but it can actually run away at maximum RPM until all the oil is used up, which will result in engine failure,

Can you drive a diesel truck with a blown turbo?

Although you can still drive with a blown turbo, it would be far more preferable to stop driving it and instead bring it to us to have the turbo repaired or replaced. The longer a blown turbo is left without repair, the more damage it will cause to the truck engine.

The Intercooler Is Key To Higher Horsepower
Because the air is compressed, together with the heat from the exhaust gas; the air in the compressor increases in temperature (very high temperature). This is why the air must be cooled first before it is used. This is why it is passed through an air cooler (generally known as an intercooler).

The function of the intercooler is to lower the air temperature, which makes it gain higher density. Then it is directed into the engine. The moment it is redirected in the engine; more fuel is added to create more horsepower. This makes a car engine gain speed and power.

However, just like any other part in a truck, turbos wear out with time. The turbocharger in your diesel truck works hard, spinning up to 30,000 rpm, day in and day out.
