I have a 2003 PT Cruiser, turbo. It's making a loud, whining sound when I step on the gas (stops when I coast). Is it a bad turbo?

Check your drive belt for proper tension and for wear. Most likely a worn/damaged belt. Thanks for using FixYa!!

Hi,
It seems that there are some pulley which needs to be tuned up. Tighten all the pulleys and replace the belt.
Thank You for contacting Fixya.com

My 2003 sonoma makes a loud wining noise when i step on the gas, but disapers when i take my foot off the gas


If it accelerates OK and nothing else seems wrong I wouldn't worry about it because it is probably just changes in the air flow volume through the air-intake system causing this whine!!

2003 PT Cruiser turbo. Has just 67k miles on it. Just began making a low pitched loud whistle sound on acceleration or load/uphill. Gets louder with greater acceleration/load, no decrease in power.


I took my car to Keller's Auto Repair in Gettysburg PA, He specializes in Chryslers. I have 04 Cruiser with 2.4 Turbo that had the same whistle noise, and check engine light on. He found code P0301. The noise was caused by the #1 Cylinder injector O ring. Check them out on facebook. They will help you.

Turbo spins but there is no boost


Turbos are fairly simple pieces of equipment and the failure almost always happens in the bearings. It sounds to me like one or both bearings are shot and aren't allowing the impeller to spin up properly. You'll need a rebuild or a new/reconditioned turbo.
