Hi all, just a question regarding turbo-noise.

My 08 159 1,9 diesel have started (I think) to make weak hi pitch turbo-noise. The noise is following the turbo pressure instrument.

Only had the car for a month now, and I am surtain this noise have not been there the first three weeks. Or is it all in my head
As I said the noise is weak, it's possible to hear it with the fan and stereo off in normal speeds, but easy to hear from start of driving. There isn't any change in performance as far as I can tell. There is no smoke from the exhause and the engine is running smoothly.

Any of you with the same noise or do I have a problem?

dont want to bring you bad luck but it has just happened to me that the turbo blew. Car started whining back in June, never really paid attention to it until i started thinking that the turbo is acting weird and wouldnt have the same push it used to have. months and months went by and still the same things even though i changed the turbo hoses, clutch, egr but nothing changed and then on new years eve the turbo seals/bearings failed and now ive ordered a new one. so what im saying is take it to a turbo specialist and have them check it out as if it fails it could be a pain in the ***!

But I THINK that any turbo makes a slight whining noise in itself. Mine (brand new TBI) and my wife´s (1.9 JTD) both do.
