FORD FOCUS 1800 TDI - MILEAGE=92,000 REG= Y/2001
If I drive at a contant speed of 30 in 3rd gear = no noise, if I then accelerate I get a screaming noise untill I stop accelerating or change gear. This happens in every gear tho. Is it my fan belt? Not long had a new timing belt, but after a week it snapped, all fixed now tho, could it have something to do with that.

ps, I wud have sent a donation, but can't because its only USD!

The noise only started yesterday, I have owned this car for the last three years. My timing belt was replaced for a second time in December and everything was fine, no noises, just fine. The garage replaced the timing belt, tensions, head gaskett and valves, due to the damage of the belt snapping. They did not say anything else about any other belts.

Its not the belt. My turbo has cut off, the car has no umf. The sound is more like a high pitched whistle now. Help. I have checked the hoses for splits, no joy and checked if they had oil in them, it all looks fine. The whistle does happen now when stationary, with high revs. :(

Had same problem with truck it would whistle when accelerating and then stop when gears would shift or I let off the accelerator.

I took off the hoses to the throttle bore and air cleaner cleaned them out replaced the one and for soem strange reason it stoped making the sound.

But for your probelm it could be the turbo has done some nice dammage to engine

Yep, turbo!
Someone said it could be a gasket. Something about turbo to manifold? Any ideas what this could be and why my turbos cut off? The car still runs but could this have done damage to my engine?
Does all this point at a very pricey repair job?
