At Ward Service Auto Repair in Monrovia, CA, we know there’s a lot of conflict on when you should maintain certain things on your truck.

The turbo on your diesel pickup is a precision engineered component. As a result, proper maintenance is essential to keeping it going strong. At tens or even hundreds of thousands of RPM, keeping everything in good shape is absolutely necessary. Fortunately, turbos don’t really require any special maintenance - they just make the maintenance you do all the more important.
