    confused Turbo Noise (Sssshhhhh)

    Ive been searching some forums here on turbo problems or odd noises and have come across a worrying noise myself i have a 04 1.9cdti 8valve and all of a sudden its making this sshhhhh noise instead of a zzzz as it suppose to do.

    This new odd sound is like air brakes. I thought its some split some where or pipes come off and got it to the garage on the ramp and guess what nothing no loose pipes no visible splits...... no smoking either no loss of pick up i know that when the pipes come off or have a major split it will smoke heavly but this ssshhhh noise is driving me nuts im a cabbi so im allways putting my foot down on the weekends! Mind you at the start it sounded good putting your foot down and heads turning!lol but after reading some forums on the turbo probs and the boost pipes i cant seem to figure anything out the cars on 97000. anyone experianced this aswell or any advice to a thread concerning the 1.9 cdti 8 valves? or shall i pop it to a vx dealer?

    Best bet if you think somethings up drop it down your local garage get them to have a look, its probably the turbo just warming or spinning up and down, i doubt its anything to worry about.

    When you accelerate and deaccelerate can you hear it spinning up and down, or is it constantly making that noise when you are accelerating

    Sounds daft, but check the airbox is fully sealed, might have a small leak.
