Re: What does the Turbo sound like just before it fails?
Thanks again Grampy.
The thing that got me was the metal in the oil. Looked like metal flake paint, but more powder like. Also, the high pitched screem, then the buzzing rattle sound, then power loss and boost loss. This only occured when towing uphill. Oil also had a burnt look to it, more than when I had changed it in the past.
Now the turbo also makes a sound at idle like an air leak sound, and is much louder than before.
My concern about the metal in the oil when I dumped it after the trip. Never have seen that, and I am pretty anal about fluid control and cleanliness of fluids, every 3k.
Does that help a little? Does this description sound like ea turbo issue, and BTW, this is exactly how I described it as well as other info to the Service Manager and Writer on the sheet.
