Squealing noise on startup
My GT 1.9jtdm has a high pitched squealing noise on startup, blip the throttle and it will squeal, tick over and it wont. I thought it might be the Altenator or the aux belt, but its neither as the squeal is still present when you run the engine without the aux belt. One garage has said it "might" be the turbo and another has sait that it "might" be a leaking injector seal.
The noise will only last about 20 to 30 seconds and then its gone.
any ideas greatly appreciated
