Question Turbo Problem

Hi Guys,

I recently bought a Ulysse 03 2.2 70K Miles and till today no problems.

I had a trouble experience this morning, the turbo went silent for 1/3 of a mile and after everything went back to normal. Any Idea?

Is the turbo meant to make a lot of noise ?

Thank you for your help.

Re: Turbo Problem

How do you know it's the turbo making a noise?
Can't say I notice my one being noisy.
If yours is maybe it has a fault and the silent period was it being ok.

Re: Turbo Problem

When starting from cold and driving with the window down I can hear my turbo spin up but this is only for a mile or so until the engine starts to warm up.

Re: Turbo Problem

Sounds like early bearing failure, hope it had good quality oil put in at every service and on time?

Bad luck that, and expensive too I bet .

Re: Turbo Problem

Is the faulty be related to wear & Tear or Faulty part?
I am not an expert in cars (another planet ) . what is the life expectancy of a turbo?

100000 miles ( more or less)

the job will cost 1500 @ fiat. The problem is, my insurance wont cover if it is wear and tear. What i am trying to find out is how often do you change one?

Please help
