Default ratteling turbo

I have a 2007 PT Cruiser 2.4 turbo touring. my turbo started ratteling yesterday.At least I think its my turbo. I have no oil leaks and no smoke. What can this problem be? I took off the airfilter hose and listened to it and the ratteling is coming from the turbo.I dont have the $2000 it takes to buy a new one. Any suggestions?

You'll have to ask around about the rebuild kit.

if you think it is the turbo than take a long screwdriver, pipe or something very hard and start placing it on spots around the engine while you press your ear up to the other end (cheap mans stethascope)and listen.

Consider a turbo from the junk yard or look in the yellow pages to see if you have any businesses in your city that repairs/rebuilds turbos. Or, go to some diesel truck supply stores and ask them where they send/get their turbos from

hope this helps you
