Turbo Whine Focus

4 posts in this topic

I have a 2006 Focus 1.8TDCi LX, I recently developed a split in the Longest of the Intercooler pipes causing a Hiss on boost. I replaced the pipe, I now have a Loud whining noise when the Turbo kicks in.

The only way to describe this sound is "Fan belt Squeal", Power is not restricted, No smoke from back end, Its just a really horrible noise which turns heads.

12 hours of "Googling" brings up Turbo Bearing may be failing, or lack of oil.

Ford want £90 per hour, and £1300 for a new turbo

Any Ideas or experiences would be much appreciated

First thing you need to check is the oil line to the turbo is clear and the turbo is actually getting oil , Frequent oil changes are needed if you want to keep the turbo in good running order.

A bit late as I have just sold it and bought a Mondeo, The noise was actually the 40mm, 90 degree hose coming off the turbo, I had made a repair by using a special tape from a car shop, the noise was being caused by a piece of tape being sucked into the 3" slit thus making the noise, Kind of like putting a blade of grass between your fingers and blowing.

problem solved, £50 for a new pipe.
