When you shut your turbocharged engine off immediately without allowing it to cool down first, then oil is allowed to sit uncirculated directly on the hot turbocharger shaft and bearings. This oil cooks into a carbon coating on the heated components. Eventually this carbon coating will build up and cause the turbocharger bearings to seize. This results in turbo failure and potential engine damage.
Solution is simple:
This can easily be solved by installing a Diesel Turbo Lifesaver (DTLS). Once the Diesel Turbo Lifesaver is installed, you don't have to do anything. You simply turn off the ignition switch, remove the key and get out of your vehicle as you normally would. The Diesel Turbo Lifesaver takes over and automatically idles your engine and then shuts it off once a safe turbo shut-down temperature has been reached.
Additionally, Diesel Turbo Lifesaver features a built in SECURITY features to safeguard your vehicle and can also be used as a PRE-LUBER (most vehicles) to maximize the life of your turbocharger and engine.
