Where can I buy a new turbocharger for my Chevy Cruze?

If you have a decent dealership they will match online prices. Go in with prices from GMPARTSDIRECT.com and see what they can do.

What happens if you don’t release the turbocharger?

Damage and costly repairs to a vehicle can also occur. Failing to release exhaust gases after the turbocharger reaches maximum pressure leads to an excessive boost. The system now has too much boost and no way to release it, leading to back pressure in the engine.

What happens when a wastegate is open on a turbocharger?

Since a wastegate regulates the maximum boost, the boost suffers when the wastegate remains open. When the wastegate remains open for longer than it should, the exhaust gases bypass the turbine wheel. The gases then exit through the exhaust, resulting in no boost pressure and drastically reducing the engine’s power.
