    1.9cdti 150 sri hissing?

    hey guys,

    just noticed a hissing noise when i'm accelerating, in perfect timing with the turbo, so i'm pretty sure its something to do with that. Anybody know what this may be? Is it likely the turbo needs replaced, or could it be something else?

    Only had the car 6 months and already i've had to fit a new inlet manifold 2 months ago.

    Starting to wish i'd never bought it

    Stevie, that hissing or more accurately whistling sound is your turbo spinning up and is a good thing to hear (i love the sound personally). So I'd be more worried when you don't hear it!

    I wish you were right buddy, turned out to be leaking boost through a pipe joining the intercooler, it went from the usual turbo spinning up chant (which i incidentally love in tunnels!!) to a full on jet engine whoosh lol.

    101 repair work by a local garage and most of that was labour, it was just an O-Ring they replaced and sealed!

    Expensive stuff, this car malarky, and as for my "the whole worlds against me" attitude the other day, FUGG IT! Theres a reason i drive, and that was totally re-affirmed the minute i felt the Turbo boost, which i then realised had been lacking these last few weeks.

    So now we are back to the whistle i love and the torque i was missing
