I'm getting ready to take my 94 Buick Ultra from Ohio to Florida with
115K already on the motor. Yesterday, my tire mechanic listened to my
supercharger grumbling away and he said I needed to replace the
supercharger before my trip. That was bad enough news, but easy enough
to ignore until he said that if the supercharger self-destructed on the
trip it would deposit its parts in my engine, thus destroying my engine
too! That got my attention.
So I asked my other mechanic and he said he never heard of that
Question 1: I'm wondering if anyone has ever heard of a supercharger
tying up an engine with its parts.
Question 2: Is it all right for my supercharger to make some noise, a
bit like someone was crushing ice in the next apartment over?
