Turbo Repair or Replacement recommendation anyone. 4 Years, 3 Months ago Karma: 11
Anone on here know of a mechanic that can repair the turbo in a 94 MR2.? It sounds like the bearings as it gives a small rattle when you rev the car. Rattle doesn't stay in it for long, maybe a second or 2 on each acceleration. Any info on this would be great. I haven't bought the car just yet, waiting to find out if repair can be made at a reasonable price as seller is set on the price of sale.
Thanks in advance

Tom Cooney in Portlaoise is you best bet as far as I concern - 0578620514
He is a very nice old man and definitely knows what he is doing. He reconditioned my ct20 few years ago.

By the way, are u sure its the turbo? Is there any smoke coming out from the exhaust under full boost? Would you be able to check shaft play?

Didn't notice any smoke coming from it. The rattle is coming from up under the heat shield area, a lad that was checking it over for me before i bought it said it's the bearings in the turbo. He seemed to know his way around it, so kinda wentt with it. Does that lad charge much to do it said.? And what sort of time frame would he have the car.?
Cheers for your help pal

Few years ago he didn't deal with removing/remounting the turbo, you had to bring the turbo to him by itself. I really don't think its changed, so you will need another mech to remove the turbo. I'd say just give him a ring for more info.
Price-wise I can't remember now, but expect a price of around 500.

Gave him a ring, price is spot on. And id havery to pay a mechanic to remove it for me too. Might end up near 100 all together. And then i have the clutch to look at. Need to think carefully about this one.

Yeah, the price could go very high indeed. If you plan long term with your 2 it will well worth it.

Good luck mate!

Picking the car up today and dropping it off with my mechanic to check it out. Might be an option to buy a replacement, but gonna try repair first. Cheers for info

Sorry pal, just noticed the error. Its around 500 to repair it. Then a mechanic has to be paid to remove it and refit it.
