Possible Turbo Screech ??? - JT
Hi
On L Escort TD 1.8, there is a 'screeching' noise from the turbo area (drivers side) when I reach max revs to change gear.
Is this dangerous or is there nothing to worry about?
Thanks.

I would suggest the screech is most likely to be a belt slipping - alternator or PAS perhaps.

It might also be possible there is a very small air leak on the engine side of the turbo which is only aparent at full boost, so check all hoses and connections.
