Loud whistle from engine under load!!!!!!!

Post by FOZEY »

Latest from my DS7 is a loud whistle under load from the engine. It can be heard inside and from the outside. I think turbo. Only done 16k and not hammered. Does anyone have any info with regards to turbo failure?

Booked in with the dealer to match rear light cluster swap. ( filled with water)

I have requested a uplift to the dealer 53 miles away and have stopped driving it to save it going seriously wrong.

You may have an issue with the air intake hose which may have a leak or a nick in it.

UPDATE...... It was indeed the turbo and requires replacing under warranty, however.....................................The nightmare begins! When asked by the garage for a pic of the service history so they can claim from DS the costs, I was informed that the service was one year late. The car was first registered in dec 2019. I purchased the car from a citroen dealer in sept 21. The only service in the book is 2 days before I picked up at 7500 miles. Issue is it should have been serviced in dec 20. The servicing says 20k miles /1 year. The current mileage is 16k.

Difficult situation indeed!
