  1. HI, As this is my first post, I would like to say Hi to everyone. I have just brought a diesel escort 18 TD (as a runabout), and would like to know how to check if my turbo is working as it should. I have had diesel turbo cars before and normally you would hear a whistle or something, my escort should I say does a whooosh! not sure if this is leaking, or if this is how it should be. Not having a 1800 before, not sure about the performance. I know something is laking as I understand that a standard diesel (no turbo) normally goes from 0-60 in about 3 months. My escort well feels to be that long. Any suggestions? Thanks Jimbo.
