    Exclamation Cracking & Turbo WARNING!

    I think I am having some bad luck, to many things seem to be going wrong with my vectra lately...


    I am getting a crackling sound its normally louder when the car is cold and continues getting louder and silent - its not a screeching sound its a
    cracking-ling sound at around 1000 - 1200rpm in most gears and theres literally ssssssssssssssssssssssss sound coming from somewhere around the fan belt. area



    I took it one garage to get it diagnosed and he had a quick look and told me its a the fan belt but its good enough for another few thousand miles unless you get fed up of the noise.

    I took it to another and he put his foot down while idling and I realised it was the turbo its not whining right its like a bzzzzzz sound then a whistle clean sound.

    I have given the car to get a second opinion on both things. Both cars where not test driven. The guy who said it was the turbo checked all the pipes to see nothing was leaking or pipes where burst.

    Any suggestions & anyone know of any good cheap places for genuine NEW / RECONDITIONED TURBO IF IS THAT & LABOUR COSTS? IF ITS CHEAP I AM WILLING TO TRAVEL TO GET EM DONE.

    CHEERS

    Well it's definitely not the fan belt, because the Vectra doesn't have one. The fans are electrically powered.

    Its actually the 'flat' aux serpent belt he'll be talking about more than likely, I use rubber & nylon lubricant for belt hissing & get it from halfords.
