    Default Whistle

    Asked this a few weeks ago but seems to be getting worse....advised they all do it but just making sure!!!

    When the cars started from cold(08 plate 150cdti)the first 2-3 minutes i get a loud whistling noise..seems to be there right from pulling of...people look at me to see what it is...no loss of power etc...

    To me now when its warm i can also hear the whistle but more so from 1800rpm onwards...not as loud as when its cold first thing but its definatly there...

    Any pointers as to what it could be...possible trouble ahead maybe?

    ITS DONE 43K in 2 1/2yrs...if that makes any differance.

    Had the front bumper off to remove and clean the washer bottole and checked the hoses from the intercooler and there all ok...

    mine is making a really loud whistling noise in time with the revs, and has bad smoke when cold so think the turbo is on its road out. mine started with the whistling being quite quiet, then getting gradually worse. ppl on here say its just the normal sound of a turbo but i found the normal turbo sound on these to be more of a sucking sound sokeepan eye on the turbo mate

    mines def makes a loud whistle noise, then sounds like a dump valve after gear change, but it's in time with turbo kicking in, i can hear a hissing sound under bonnet when siting at idle more towards the offside of the car to the back.
