Loud Woosh Noise From Turbo On TDI

Good 2 B A Gooner Apr 10, 2010

  1. Any ideas why my TDI Turbo seems to be making a loud woosh when the turbo kick in - It's not like a nice woosh either! I've never heard it before, and it can only be heard when the windows are open on the car.

    I don't drive the car daily as i have a van for work, so unsure if it's been there for any length of time - Seems to be ok on performance - A loose hose maybe, or something on the waste-gate?!

    Is it a whoosh or a whine??
     
  3. It sounds like air at pressure, like a woosh sound every time i put my foot down and the turbo kicks in - hose maybe? It's not a turbo whistle.

    yeh was thinking it could be a hose thats come/coming off!
     
  5. Fingers crossed - It's had a new turbo before i bought it - Hope it's something small, as i want to sell it soon :ermm:

    then fingers crossed indeed! Seems loads have had to have new turbos! So what are you moving onto?????
     
  7. I did look at Merc's and BM's but they're not my cuppa tea! I'd like an A6 Le-Mans Avant, but they're £££'s, so it'll prob be another A4 S-Line but with more gadgets and a few years younger!
    Audi drivers are tight though - I've been looking for ages for one with Xenon's as we drive mostly on 60mph A roads without street lighting - But they're as common as rockin horse sh*t...

    Yeh it weird isnt it, took me ages too to find mine with extras on. Lots are fairly basic with no upgrades. I had a 530d and it had lots of toys which was cool. But I wanted to come back to Audi. Good luck searching, hope you find what you are after, they are around!

    This loud whoosh noise 'good 2 be a gonner'...and without sounding patronising...but is it not your dump valve???
     
  11. lol - I have a diesel A4 Avant - No dump valve on that mate... lol

    It's when the turbo's in use that it makes the woosh! Pretty sure it's a hose.
     
  12. An update for anyone else that may suffer from this in future - It's the EGR Cooler Pipe - £445.... P*SSED...
