    Noticed today while driving into town....

    On load at around 2600 to 3200rpm the Turbo sounds very load..I know the PD130's are quite whistly anyway but this is more of a coooo in he car?

    Any ideas? It is only under load



    Cheers

    Could be a boost leak causing the turbo to work harder...

    It could be that the turbo is getting a little tired (good excuse for a upgrade/hybrid)
    How many miles has it done?

    Its a really strange sound...not the normal whistle of a turbo, almost like the noise when u blow over the top of an empty bottle? by a higher pitch.

    I had a 2.0tdi golf into my workshop two weeks ago for this exact thing. We renewed the turbo, it was fubared.

    My old Fabia VRS did exactly this! When I removed the turbo, the shaft was bent. Never seen that before!
