Does a turbo hafta be rebuilt automatically after coolant and water get into the bearings? Or does it depend on the situation? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks Scott

I would say that it depends *s* if the shaft if not loose (wobbling) it is probably ok...just check it frequently at first. Coolant is really bad on conventional bearings...crank and rods...however...watch your oil pressure and be sure it is not going down.
