I'm a slope foreheaded, uni-browed, knuckle dragging lout when it comes to mechanical things, so I read the manual for our Yanmar 4JH2-UTE engine.

It gives instruction on how, if running at a fast idle for a prolonged period, to run it at a faster rpm for a certain length of time...I'm assuming this is to clean the turbo, among other things...

Would idleing for prolonged periods, such as battery charging or trolling for salmon, be a major reason why turbos fail?

Looking forward to more in depth answers.
