My suspicious nature and having had previous experience with teenagers, would make me wonder if 4 min was a correct time.
A turbo problem would not affect the speed at which the engine turns over on the starter (turbo only has an effect over 2000 RPM). Turning over slowly could suggest scored bearings...?
It's very easy for people today to ignore a light on the dashboard. Their urgency is not always clearly indicated. Instruments have been left off for economic reasons. You may be in for an expensive lesson.
You might find a sympathetic mechanic.....with teenagers of his own, to help you see how bad the problem is.
