This plastic piece that splits into 3 radiator hoses broke and I don't know what it is
It a hose T just go to any parts store and take the part
It's the "T" and provides coolant to your turbo. Any parts store or even home depot will have this.
I checked a couple places and they don't have them, could anyone provide a link to buy one?
That "T" fitting is not OEM, there should be a single hose going to that hard pipe which is the coolant return line from the oil filter housing (OFH).
...and if you look closely at the diagram above, the coolant line coming off the back of the turbo should connect like this to the side of the water pipe.
You can find any at autozone by the hose clamp section they will have tee's there all different sizes it's easy to over look them or a junk yard or even the dealership possibly with the Vin #. Goodluck Jen c.
Just get a T from any parts store or home improvement. It's not a special valve or anything.
cap it and buy a turbo timer. one less thing to leak
What . What does a turbo have to do with this
line sends coolant to/from turbo to help cool it, remove the T, loop the coolant lines. install turbo timer to let hot oil drainback out of turbo. while car is at idle (due to turbo timer) turbo cools "naturally" with no coolant....stock turbos dont necessarily NEED the coolant they dont get that hot
Ah that's true. Good point.
But yea, its called a tubing tee (3/8 X 3/8 X 3/8) is the size and they do have them at Advanced Auto Parts here in CO, dont know if you have one of those in your area but the part# is 47343 about 4 bucks.
While there are plenty of oil cooled turbos, I'll agree that they don't always need water cooling. If the charger has the capability to be water cooled, why not use it? Here's an article that helps explain it better than I can.
