As many fans of a turbocharged engine will know, a turbo often makes a whistling sound. This whistle is the sound of the turbo operating effectively, also known as ‘spooling up’. But what if there is a change in the noise a turbo makes? If your turbo starts to make a noise similar to an emergency services siren, or a dentist drill, it is a sure sign that there may be a problem. Some common causes of turbo noise (not to be confused with turbo damage) can be compressor wheel damage, split hoses, and over boosting.
