Well, lets see....there is no "Grand Prix Turbo" so I am assuming that you mean that your Grand Prix is a 3.8L that is equipped with a supercharger.

The supercharger bearings are lubricated with synthetic oil that is contained in the supercharger gousing. It is self-contained and does not rely on engine oil for lubrication. You can check the oil level in the supercharger by removing the plug in the supercharger housing (see diagram)

Could be the main bearing inside the turbo is gone .. If that is the problem you will need to replace the turbo.

My 04 VW Jetta blew thick white smoke from tailpipe after freeway drive. No indicator lights came on, all oil leaked out (after smoke started)... is this engine or could it be just the turbos? Right...


A new turbo charger is about $340, but you can buy the bearings and seals and rebuilt if yourself for about $100

It is not hard, and it does not take long to do.

I normally do not bother with synthetic, but with a turbo charger, it might be worth it. What really seems to ruin turbo chargers the most is not letting them cool off before parking.
Once you turn off the engine, there is no longer any cooling, so the build up heat will burn up the oil and seals.
Run the engine for at least 5 minutes below turbo levels, before shutting down the engine.

Passat 1.8t turbo problem


A bearing going bad. Do you follow turbo shut down procedures? If you don't have time to do this then my suggestion is installing a turbo timer to do this automatically. When you drive the car specially a high speed and need to shut down the engine is the worse thing you can do to your turbo. The impeller spins double the speed of sound and takes quite a while to slow down specially when you shut down the engine. At the same time it is shut down, oil pressure is no longer provided by the oil pump and cooking from extremely hot turbo assembly. The end product is oil carbonizing and clogging moving parts. The term is called coking. A turbo timer will keep your engine running when you remove the key from ignition and lock the vehicle for a programmable amount of time. This will help the turbo to spin dow while lowering the temperature critical for a longer servie life of your turbo charger.

Ford f350 makes grinding noise and hold uneven boost


you probably need new turbo. check oil supply to the turbo. grinding noise sounds like bearings in turbo are overheating do to lack of oil and slowing down the turbo. that explains the uneven boost press.

Whining noise usually comes from defective bearings. have the bearings of your turbo charger checked.
