Turbo noise


Recommended Posts

Hi all new to the forum after a recent purchase of my 2007 focus zetec climate 1.6 tdci with dreaded dpf, anyway...

I've noticed the turbo doesn't sound like a normal turbo, when accelerating it doesn't whistle, but it sounds like a flute or a penny whistle.

My girlfriends comment was that the car sounds like one of those stupid electric cars.


Is this turbo noise normal there is no play in the turbine, however the manifold is oily, I've been looking into the oil catch tank. Also I have blanked the egr but the noise was the same before and after.
