    Unhappy What is this whistling noise?

    Help!! My car is poorly

    Whilst driving around today I noticed it had started whistling when I was accelerating It has never done this before, so I am quite concerned!!

    I have spoken to the service manager at my local Vauxhall Dealers and he said it sounds like the Turbo, but without checking it out is not 100% sure. He also said it could quite simply be a split in 1 of the pipes?

    I did have a new Turbo fitted in August '07 and have only done 15000 miles since then. Surely it shouldn't go after so little miles??

    Cheers in advance peeps

    How loud is the whistling?

    all turbo's are supposed to whistle...

    The whistling is caused by turbo sucking in the air and compressing it...when it stops whistling its time to get worried.

    My car whistles too but im sure its not got a turbo! searching around on here I came up with the conclusion that it happens on most astras. MK3's MK4 etc.
