Turbochargers are designed to increase the power output of your diesel engine by compressing more air into the engine's cylinder before fuel is injected. Higher levels of air pressure means more fuel can be burned which increases horsepower. A diesel engine without a turbo would have substantially less power it is rare to find a modern diesel engines without a turbo. They increase fuel economy while cutting down on emissions, noise, and size of the engine. Turbochargers are typically very reliable. Faulty turbos are typically the result of a faulty lubrication system or damaged seals as opposed to the turbocharger itself. Turbochargers need a constant flow of clean oil to prevent friction on the inside of the turbo. An oil leak due to damaged seals between the compressor and the engine can also create a decrease in power from the turbo as oil gets drawn into the inlet tract.
