Starting and driving / Turbocharger operation

Mitsubishi Lancer: Turbocharger operation. Caution Caution

► Do not run the engine at high speeds (for example, by revving it or by accelerating rapidly) immediately after starting it.
► Do not stop the engine immediately after high-speed or uphill driving. First allow the engine to idle to give the turbocharger a chance to cool down.

Turbocharger

The turbocharger increases engine power by pushing large amounts of air into the engine’s cylinders.

The finned parts inside the turbocharger turn at extremely high speeds and are subjected to extremely high temperatures. They are lubricated and cooled by engine oil. If the engine oil is not replaced at the specified intervals, the bearings may seize or emit abnormal noise.
