When I press the gas there is a loud whining noise in the front of the engine. I only have 23000 miles could it be a loose hose to the turbo or something more severe?

It sounds like a turbo issue. But that would be very hard to diagnose over the internet, but that type of noise does sound familiar when talking about a turbo Volkswagen.

I think it is best to have it diagnosed by a repair shop as soon as possible to avoid any chance of damage.

2002 Duramax with high miles, 335k. Truck was running fine then on the way out of the driveway heard a loud "pop", engine lost power but continued to run. Now, I hear a turbo whine I didnt hear before when...


Start at the turbo and check for loose or blown air lines . Check the intercooler for cracks. The turbo whine is normal but you would not be hearing it as the turbo is controlled to vary the amount of boost needed for the throttle setting. If you have to use starting fluid to start a diesel then it is time to consider a re-ring and bearings for the engine.

Some whine is not really a problem and is not worth the cost to replace the turbo. You have more than likely heard trucks with turbo whine and they don't worry about it. If the whine is really loud then the turbo has a worn bearing and it will need to be replaced in the near future or it will seize up eventually.

Whining sound and lost acceleration. Sounds like noise coming from pully? Whining increases when pressing the gas.


The lost acceleration is of major concern. Maybe you have lost your water pump. It would work great for a few miles when you start out and then gradually heat up and loose performance. The fluid would eventually boil over? Maybe a bearing on the camshaft is expressing it's discontent and causing extra load for the engine to overcome. Try to determine where the noise is coming from.
The serpentine belt connects the alternator, water pump, power steering, front timing pulley, fan, and front timing pulley. All these components generate a parasitic load on your engine. If the engine has to work harder because of increased load it could be any of these components. I'd definitely check the water pump listening for noise while running. Look for obvious things related to the belt and its' components.
Check the serpentine belt for wear. May indicate pulley misalignment or wear. There exists two idler pulleys that have small bearings that wear out and squealing noises. Check those for wobble with the tension off the belt. They are pretty cheap so replace them if any concern at all.
Power steering pumps cavitate and make a high pitch gear whining sound if fluids are low or gears warn of. Check the fluid and top off to the correct level.
Best wishes,
TF

Nissan Navara STR 2006 d22 3lt turbo. Turbo is whistling very


Remember, what is heard as turbocharger noise may not be caused by a noisy turbocharger. Before replacing a turbocharger perform the following diagnosis.
A. If a loud whine or whistle is heard during acceleration and increases or decreases with rpm and load. This condition is most often the result of a loose clamp/hose at the turbocharger compressor outlet, charge air cooler inlet, outlet or at the intake manifold.

1. With the engine running at idle and the transmission in Park or Neutral with the parking brake set, feel for boost air escaping at each connection between the turbocharger compressor outlet and intake manifold. For limited access areas, spray soapy water on those connectors and look for bubbles.

2. Check the exhaust manifold and exhaust system for leaks.

I hope this helped.

Thank you,
Norse

Not the turbo on it's last legs. Check the hoses that come off of your turbo that go into the intake. Fords are famous for the hose clamps that hold the hoses in place breaking or coming loose and the woosh sound you hear is the compressed air being forced out of the hose somewhere when the turbo spools up. When this occurs you probably don't have quite the pulling torque you should. You will notice quite a drop in performance. Check the hoses or rubber boot connections from your turbo.
