  1. Turbo Whine

    Thanks for all the info regarding the Turbo, I have decided to leave it until it gets worse as it is not worth changing right now due to costs. As for the rough running, i have had the glow plugs changed but it still is very rough running and knocking with the smoke as well still, any other ideas? would an engine management light come on and a code if one of the glow plugs was not getting power? as obviously I have no idea if they are all even heating up.

    Thanks for the info, yes oil is fine and i changed the oil and filter to check as it was due soon which made no difference. I wouldn't say its majorly loud just it didn't do it before, i took it to a ford specialist and they said they think the turbo bearing needs replacing but they said not really worth me using them to do it as it would cost more than the cars worth.

    Hiya, i have been googling this issue but most people suggest theirs also make a "wooshing" sound so decided to write my own. I have two issues, one has been like it since i got it and one only came on recently. The one that i have had since purchasing 3 weeks ago is that it seems to be really rough running when cold and has a sort of knocking sound and a fair amount of blue smoke from exhaust, this all goes away once the car has warmed up after a few mins but is really annoying. The other issue that suddenly started the other day is a whining noise that i believe is the turbo as it seems to be when its getting the power as it does not do it at low RPM. Any ideas guys? Thanks in advance. Edit: Forgot to add the specs, it is a 2.0tdci Focus Titanium 2005
