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.

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

Remove the rear wheel and inspect your brake hard ware for damage and adjustment. If thats fine, inspect the shock/ strut assembly for wear.

Audi a3 tdi 140 turbo sounds like its whistling for england why?


Turbo vehicles often sound like they are whistling when the turbo spools up because it is sucking in air at a high rate and it makes a bit of a whistling sound. Generally not a problem unless it is a different whistling that you are referring to.

Turbo loud whistling and lots of smoke coming out of the exhaust


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
