    Hi please help

    When I accelerate regardless of gear or if warm or cold the car whistles sounds like a police siren at low revs...
    Is this normal or something about to go?

    2nd issue

    When driving at a steady pace and all of a sudden floor the gas pedal the car judders before it picks up speed..


    The guy I bought the car from said the engine had work done to it by the previous owner and has always been like this for the past 4 years

    Any ideas??

    Thanks

    Sounds like the turbo is on the way out
