Super M.D.: Quick Guide to Diagnosing Roots Supercharger Issues

What screams “horsepower” more than a Roots-style supercharger poking out of a hood?

Blowers produce big power gains, offer excellent throttle response with little or no lag, and newer models even deliver decent fuel economy. And oh yeah—they look killer, too. The fact that most superchargers are virtually maintenance-free? Well, that’s an added bonus to the whole package.

More often than not, maintaining your supercharger comes down to checking the oil level, inspecting the drive belt, and keep your air cleaner as clean as possible. However, if you do encounter problems with your Roots-style supercharger, you can refer to the handy chart below to help diagnose the issue. You can click directly on the chart to enlarge, troubleshoot your problem, and get back to enjoying the benefits of your supercharged engine!
