How to deal with a hot turbocharger
FWIW, I have been instructed by heavy duty mechanics trained by both John Deere and Caterpillar to allow turbochargers on large diesel powerplants to cool by idling for several minutes before shutting down. I also know the failure of turbocharger bearings to be a common problem on heavy equipment where engines are regularly shut down without a cool-down period.
