My brother has a Saab 9-3 Vector Sport 1.9 TID (150bhp) and yesterday in 3rd gear at about 3000rpm, we heard a noise and now the car makes a whiny noise.
Was told to sign up on here as it's the same engine on the Vectra. Was told Deek is the man to speak to.
We've had breakdown cover pick us up and say that it sounded like a loose hose, or split pipe, but the guy at AA said it's the turbo gone.
There is no black smoke, no juddering etc... but here is a video to show you the noise.
Enjoy, and please help, as we hope it's not the turbo.
