Before turbo repair you need to get answers to these questions:
Why did turbo broke
There are main causes of turbocharger damage:
Oil & lubrication
To work effectively, a turbo needs a constant flow of clean oil, and to keep your turbo in top condition, you need to ensure that you change the oil and oil filter regularly.
Foreign objects like broken engine components, dust particles, small stones, dirt and leaves can enter your turbocharger, either via the compressor inlet or the turbine inlet.
Over speeding and excessive temperature
If there are any leaks, cracks or poor seals between the compressor and the engine, the turbo will have to work much harder than it should have to increase this pressure. This will reduce the efficiency and boost delivered by the turbo.
Lack of lubrication
Turbo fatigue cracking and material transfer created by metal friction and high temperatures as a result of oil inlet supply restrictions, incorrect gasket placement and use of liquid gaskets or poor quality lubricants.
How to know that turbo is in need of maintenance or repairs
Engine lacks power
Poor Transient Response
Black exhaust smoke
Blue exhaust smoke
Cyclic sound from the turbocharger
Oil leak from compressor seal
Oil leak from turbine seal
High oil consumption
Engine Running Hot
The steps you need to do
If you notice any of the warning signs, then get your turbo checked as soon as possible. Your turbocharger isn’t going to repair itself, and the longer you leave it, the worse (and more expensive) the problem will get!
