No boost and whinning.
Hi all. I have a 2000 S4 that has got no boost and the car is making a whinning noise when on the power. It is not a whooshing noise so no split pipes. (I've had one of those). For what It's worth I think one, (or both) of the turbos is not spinning. But how do I tell which one? Can you remove the turbos whithout taking the engine out. Looks like I MAY be able to get to them by dropping the sub frame. Any help would be greatly appreciated. thank you in advance. 20vtiny.
6th gear @7000rpm
Hi mate. Welcome to the forum. It's probably better to head over to the A4/S4 B5 section of the forum where the guys there would know abit more. Sounds like your turbo's may be blown?

go over it with a fine tooth comb to diagnose the issue before pulling it apart or throwing stupid amounts of money at it
Do a pressure test first ..If you have a loud winning noise i would say it's blown turbo ....... The engine has to come out to change the turbos ..
