Mitsubishi Lancer Owners Manual
Turbocharger operationStarting and driving / Turbocharger operation
► 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.
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.
