      Post 2013 Ritz VDI Turbo oil leak - Maruti service tells need to replace Turbo assembly. Suggest some cheaper solutions

      My 2013 Ritz VDI is almost nearing 77000kms. Noticed a small puddle of oil in the porch and took the car to Popular Maruti, Muvattupuzha. The SA took me to the workshop and showed the leaking area. There is significant leak seaping through the engine sump area, originating from Turbo. Since, Maruti does not repair Turbos, SA quoted almost Rs23000 for Turbo replacement + some other part that also needs to be replaced during Turbo replacement.

      So, I searched online and found a workshop in Edapally, Kochi who repair Turbos. This man is quoting Rs 8000 for full repair. He is telling that Turbo may not be damaged and only the "Core" needs to be replaced. I'm not sure about the workshop. Can someone recommend a good Turbo repairer in Kochi or nearby?
      PS: No turbo whistling or lack of power in general observation. Except for the slight increase in diesel clatter sound.

      Thank you.

      23k for a new turbo is CHEAP. Get it replaced without thinking much if the turbo is indeed bad.

      I've seen enough and more times, a rebuilt turbo will never function anywhere near as good as a brand new one.

      Yes. The turbo indeed is leaking, as confirmed by other workshop. A local workshop (Neptune Motors, Muvattupuzha) quoted 15K for new turbo with labor charges. The old turbo will be exchanged. OEM Turbo price of Ritz VDI is 14K, outside it is 12K. I doubt the workmanship of the local workshops since no feedback's available.

      I replaced the whole turbocharger assembly at a workshop in Muvattupuzha. It costed Rs13000 including labor. Old turbo was taken as exchange for new turbo from TEL/KKK.

      Thank you for the update. You have saved 50% from the quote by ASS.
      What is TEL/KKK ?
      Do they serve parts for other makes as well?

      TEL or KKK are OEM for many manufacturers. Turbocharger of multijet engine of Swift/Ritz are one of the cheapest. Maruti Auth.Service quoted 14K for turbo, Same model available outside for 12K. Another good thing is, some companies buy back old turbo's and that will reduce the cost further. I don't think this kind of arrangement is everywhere.

      I think, turbocharger of Toyota Fortuner costs around Rs1.2Lakhs just for a comparison with that of 1.3MJD engines.

      Agree.
      Turbo for Safari Costs 50k and Similar for XUV/Scorp.
      Its certainly cheap.

      The below is their product range as per their site. They must be supporting multiple makers.
      Will consider this if the turbo in my car fails.
