    Engine noise - 1.7 CDTi

    Hello, i wonder if anyone could help????

    I drive an 1.7CDTi and there is a "noise" when i accelerate.
    I tend to notice it in 3rd, 4th and 5th gears aroung the 2000 RPM. The noise sounds like a "screech" and only lasts for a second (ish).
    My fear is that it is the turbo but i am not noticing any performance issues.

    I took the car to a mechanic friend and he just said wait until it gets worse??

    Any ideas??

    I have the same problem on my 1.7cdti, mine started quiet but now is getting louder and stays for longer when i just change gear and accellerate mainly in 3rd.

    i took it to a friend who is a mechanic he said it is the drive belt, but there is nothing wrong with it, its just a noice and to replace it will cost £40 all in.

    however i am gettin a service from vauxhal this weekend so i will ask them also and then get back to you

    I have the same problem as well on a 2.0 di 16v and i am almost sure it is the turbo. It almost seems like when the turbo is kicking in the noise is at its worst and when driving fast i.e 70 the noise seems to go due to it spining so fast and the noise of the engine.
    Anyway i think its going to be a journey to a scrapyard for me as its driving me insane and i don't know how to fix the turbo myself

    anyway if you find out any more please do post back
