JTD 2.4 150 turbocharger end float
2003 156 2.4 JTD
The turbocharger on my car now makes a loud whining noise kind of like a distant police car siren at anything other than idle. This may yet turn out to be stuck vanes/split boost pipe, I haven't quite figured it out as yet.
However while trying to troubleshoot the useless thing this afternoon I had a feel of the turbo's shaft. There's a little lateral play at the compressor end but nothing excessive compared to others I've had, but a good 2mm plus of end float. This seems quite a lot to me. It certainly feels like quite a lot when you move the shaft end to end.
Is this too much / is it causing the noise?
