If your diesel came with one, put one back on. Turbos give the air volume need for your engine to run properly. If you don't want a turbo you will have to re-program your ECM, all your injectors times are set for a boosted engine.

What precautions should be taken if you own a diesel car with a turbo engine?

A turbo timer is always a safe bet on any turbo engine. It lets the engine idle after you remove the key and lock the doors. Doing this lets the engine oil cool the bearings in the turbo which will extend the live of the turbo. Also keeping your oil changed like is outlined in your owners manuel will help also.
