Hi All

I have a 2000 reg 1.9TD - idles and runs sweetly but has just started screeching about 2000rpm. I had a listen around the top of the engine and sounds like it's coming from the vicinity of the turbo.

So far I have re-sealed the inlet manifold gasket (turbo output/below the EGR) and checked the oil supply to the turbo. I can get a finger into it and found a little plat in the turbo shaft - maybe a mm or so.

I can't see any other posts for turbo issues on the ABL engine. Am I on the right track? A local garage suggested the aux belt or the overrun clutch on the alternator. Couldn't hear it down below but then I could be half deaf :(

Any thoughts welcome!

Thanks

Fixed it I:

My not-so-deaf son pinpointed it as coming from the exhaust underneath - one of the 3 bolts holding the downpipe to the cat had disappeared!

Quite an impressive noise though!
