The turbo is dead
 
My son changed out #5 glow plug yesterday (Code P0675) and found this something went thru the turbo.

Just for grins........the P0675 code is back.

Rebuilt turbo from a local re builder here in Oceanside....about $600

#5 Glow Plug
 
I have not done mine yet.. But from what I have read on the forum, it seems that the best bet is to replace all 6 glow plugs AND the glow plug controller to make sure the #5 issue is resolved.

What my dads turbo looks like. Then the glow plug, he got about 10 good starts on it with the code cleared. Looks like module time, I just swapped the module on mine, no code for over a week now.

did you suck a squirl through your turbo by accident or what? Those look like they took a beating.
This is why I try not to run anything but dry filters.

No idea what happened. My son was changing out #5 glow plug, pulled the intake tube for grins and then I heard "Dad, look what I found!" We checked the filter and any pathway that vcould lead to injestion, but found nothing. I'll fix it this weekend.

Any idea how long that may take?

Running a K&N filter, and a GDT

Do you have the aluminum plug in the turbo intake tube?

I saw some people plugging the 1/2" hole in the turbo intake tube (about 2" infront of the turbo) with some ACE hardware rubber plug with a nut and bolt... and if that is there that could have caused it if it came apart.

Factory runs a rubber tube from the crank case breather hole on the passenger valve cover up by the firewall to the turbo intake tube, a couple inches in front of the turbo, with a small heater inline of the tube.

I'll take a look in the AM but I don't remember any mods to the system. I'm thinking my son would have caught that as he has the same jeep.

Checked this AM.

That what is there, the factory setup.

I didn't look at the heater in the inlet tube, maybe the heater came apart and FOD'ed out the turbo. You just have to pull the end cover to get to the heater.

Make sure the K&N fits properly. I have seen numerous filters with bad fitments allowing dust particles to bypass the filter and erode turbo vanes. None as bad as yours however.

Hi,
I had the same problems as discussed here, new glow plug controller installed and now I need a new turbo (mine looks the same as in the picture here in this thread). Have you any good suggestions where t buy a rebuilt turbocharger? I am looking around for options. Seems hard to get rebuilt with original parts.

I pulled the heater off the breather tube. There is nothing inside the heater part, just slick orange plastic. Is there anything supposed to be inside that short piece of tube?

terrasmak 11-08-2013 08:40 PM

If I was back in the states I would easy pull mine off and look. Should have checked last weekend when I was down in SoCal.
