Re: Turbo loud whistling and lots of smoke coming out of...
OK now what i am going to tell you, you need to listen to.... sounds like your turbo is on the way out and need to be repaired or replaced if you continue driving the car the spool may snap and go into your motor and that will cost you a new motor stop driving it... if you need to don't push the car be soft diesels are not a good car to push anyway take it and get it fixed or you will be out of pocket for some time i have had this happen here and it is not worth the damage

TDI I take is turbo direct injection so if that is the case you have a turbo problem or a split intercooler
what ever , the air/ fuel ratio has altered to excessive fuel
the noise could be a blown intercooler hose , split intercooler or turbine wheel in the turbo breaking off
Take it in for a proper diagnosis and have the codes read
Hi Sue, White smoke is a sign of air in the diesel system. It seems as if the fuel line is sucking in air. The most likely place is the fuel filter seal. The best way of sorting out the problem is to replace the filter with a good quality replacement fuel filter. Regards John
This is a bad issue. From now you should think about turbocharger reparation or replacement with a new one. It's a normal turbo wear after 290k km. Pay attention at exhaust gases colour and at engine oil level! Good luck!
When there's something wrong with the brake pressure that handbrake warning light comes on.
The ESP warning light could be caused by a lot of things, but most likely it's a dirty fuel filter. Don't take my word for it though, just go to the VW dealer and have it read the faultcodes from the ECU, which should point you/them in the right direction.
Alternatively, when you have the right equipment (= VAGCOM + cable) and knowledge, you or a friend yould diagnose the ECU yourself.
From the sounds of it, you'll need a small service (air filter and oil filter change, etc.) anyways. Don't forget to reset the ECU (or dis- and reconnect the battery) afterwards to erase the faultcode from memory (when there's still something wrong, it'll return soon enough).
It's probably the turbo you're hearing. They spin very fast and make a noise like that. Ever hear an 18-wheeler go by you and accelerate and they make that high-pitched whistle? That's the turbo spooling up. Now, if it sounds like a dentist's drill, that's usually a sign that the turbo is failing, but I'd bet that since your car is under four years old, as long as you've kept up on the maintenance, it's the normal turbo spool.
