Hi my 93 20L Turbo sounds like a diesel, when i turn wheel sound goes.

being 93' im not sure if the car has high miles, if it has 100k or more it would not surprised me if you start to get a poor performance and harsh noise comming out of the turbo. Life expectancy on the turbos usually run 100k and water cool tend to last a bit longer, some has better luck than other; than again it depend how the car has been driven, if it driven hard the turbos tend to work extra hard and burn out quicker. The most important factor now is that you have to maintain good clean oil change on regular basis and it very essential to cool and lubricate the tubo bearing. Bearing inside the housing usually tend to fail first, which will cause the turbo to spin unbalance wobbling in it housing causing it to make weird noise. I would take it to mechanic who know about the turbos, he can actually listen to it and tell you if the turbo is reaching the end of its life. turbo tend to get expensive to replace without it the car run very poorly and use excessive fuel consumption. If the turbo is reaching end of it life you can adjust the wast gate on the turbo to make the turbo not to run so hard, it will have some effect on performance however it will keep your turbo last allot longer than having it quit completely. Junk yard or ebay will be a good place to find a used turbo for cheap. hope that help some...

Most likely your honeycomb is broken loose inside your catalytic converter.If it breaks into smaller pieces it can start to restrict the exhaust outout & make starnge sounds like a turbo winding up.I would replace the convereter & go from there.Hope this helps

96 Golf 2.0GTI 8v knocking noise from rear when accelerating

its probably your bump stops. the vw ones are very soft. i bought ford escort (the shape after the xr3) ones and cut them a little down to fit. i think the noise is either your shock touching or the sound of the tire scraping the body of the car. hope this helps.

The turbo on my golf 1.9 tdi does not kick in on 4th gear

One of the thin vacuum pipes must be torn and the minute you go into higher/full boost the ECU doesn't get the requested pressure from the turbo and to protect the tubo from overboosting it puts the car into limp mode, The limp mode only resets when you switch the car off and back on again.

Trace all the thin 6mm vacuum pipes and you will find your leak.

Complete loss of boost

Yup your turbo is toast, ive had the same thing happen on a nissan skyline. The smoke you describe is the oil escaping from the turbo core and burning off in the dump pipe.Even though you managed to get the nut back on the compressor wheel the damage to your exhaust wheel, bearings and shaft is already done, chances are you'l be missing a few fins in the exhaust wheel to say the least, it would've propelled itself in the exhuast housing probably spinning at atleast 25,000 rpm.The turbo in the gt4 is a stong unit, just how much boost were you running? :)

A clogged, overheated catalyst can do this, it sends a signal to the computer and lowers performance plus increases the gas usage.
