Q: How to clean my Turbo

asked by on

What's the best thing to use to clean the turbo in my car

My car has 97000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi Davon. Thanks for contacting us today. Many people think that using Sea-Foam or other carbon cleaning agents is the best way to clean a turbo-charged, fuel injected system. However, Hyundai recommends a rather specific procedure be completed for their four-cylinder turbos. Since we can’t attach any documents here or provide the step-by-step instructions through this platform, the best advice we can offer is to purchase a service and repair manual for your Hyundai, or contact a local dealership to see if they can send you a PDF instruction for turbo / fuel injection cleaning.
