    If your turbo started any sooner you would be spinning your tires everytime you tried to take off. Your turbo is working just fine.

Do mazda cx7 year 2009 have problems with the turbo? I think mine may have gone then is a whearing noise whislt excelerating?

While turbo spooling is normal, there can be an access amount if the bearing is bad, do not know if Mazda has this problem but i know it runs rampant in most turbo cars that spend a lot of time driving in the 3500-4200 RPM range.

Upon start up my 1997 Ford F250 Powerstroke blows whiteish greyish smoke what is causing this.Normally it is a fair volume espeacially if the rpms are high and the turbo is spooled around 2000-2500 rpm it...

this symptom sometimes points to a bad turbo seal leaking oil, or it could be bad valve seals if it has a lot of miles could be valve seals does engine oil dissappear quickly if it does than its could be either when hot the turbo seal expends and stops leaking . there are ways to test each problem

No spool and wastegate wont open

I dont think anyone can hear the wastegate open. It opens when there is overboost and just routes exhaust around the turbo You may have heard the over boost valve open and release pressure., but normally, it doesnt open unless there is a problem with the waste gate. Its like a back up in case the waste gate is bad, or disconnected. Does the engine have the same amount of power as it always has? If so everything should be OK.

Truck takes off but turbo doesnt spool and wont shift

turbocharged diesel engines require some back pressure in the exhaust system. if you straight piped it, it won't make any power.
check vss in trans and exhaust sys for a problem.

2002 audi a4 quattro maintain acceleration problems

Likely a faulty diverter valve. If you have some decent mileage on the car the DV may be failing. It's a flimsy design with a plastic internal diaphragm. They're not terribly expensive (you can buy them at or

That being said, I'd still look around the turbo and intake systems for a loose, cracked, or disconnected vacuum hose - a vacuum leak should trip a check light but it may not always do so. Look for that, and if nothing is apparent, then I'd look at changing the DV.

Turbo spooling too high

Sounds like the gate valve is stuck. This valve dumps excess pressure when the turbo makes it.
