VNT lubrication

Published on 12 Sep 2022

What is a VNT? A VNT is a component of the turbocharger also called ”Variable nozzle turbocharger”. The VNT allows to modify the turbo response time (turbo lag) according to the engine speed. It allows the turbo to offer a maximum boost even at low rpm.

It is in understanding the purpose of the VNT that we realize that simple lubrication of this system is critical to prevent the VNT rod from seizing and creating an engine failure.
