Tech Tip: Clogged Oil Line Leads To Chrysler/Dodge Turbocharger Failure

Extreme temperatures cause the oil circulating through the turbocharger oil feed line to burn. The coked oil buildup restricts oil flow, which leads to turbocharger failure. The oil line may appear fine externally.

Application: 2003-’09 Chrysler PT Cruiser and Dodge Neon with turbochargers; 2T-315.
 
Problem: Premature turbocharger failure. 
 
Cause: Extreme temperatures cause the oil circulating through the turbocharger oil feed line to burn. The coked oil buildup restricts oil flow, which leads to turbocharger failure. The oil line may appear fine externally.
 
Solution: The oil feed line must be replaced as well as the turbocharger. Look for a turbocharger that includes a new, upgraded oil feed line with heat shield, so you don’t have to source it separately. Installing this new line will restore oil flow and ensure the longest possible service life of the replacement turbocharger.
