Turbo Engines Used To Burn Up, Still True?

It was indeed the case back in the old days that at around 75,000 miles a turbo engine would fail, and in a spectacular cloud of black smoke. This was, of course, something that people would come to mechanics for with great regularity.

The reason this happened was that, over time, the lubricants for the turbo fan would dry up and the turbo fan would overheat. Since then, technology has come a long way and with improvements in design and lubricants, there’s no reason a new turbo engine can’t go 220,000 without an issue.
