Default Turbo Pop Noise??

So the local garage said that the car needs a new turbo... this is what happens when it starts up... and on the way to the garage it happened a couple times. I drove it because I thought it was the starter possibly.

They wanted close to $3000 for parts and labor, but I have seen reman kits for $500-700. What is the replacement like?

That just sounds to me like you've got a vacuum leak somewhere. I'd go get another opinion. AFTER I checked my vacuum lines first. And $3,000?? Are you kidding me? You can get another PT for less than that. Run, don't walk away from that shop. Heck, someone here probably has another turbo that you could buy a lot cheaper than that.

I can honestly say I have never heard that noise. It's definitely not work 3k to fix.

I am thinking that maybe the blade is getting stuck or something. I am going to pull the turbo myself (strongly mechanically inclined and have tools like a mechanic, just no lift).

I when it runs it sounds like a bearing has gone, but it is a weird sound and it sounds mechanical. I wont pay for the new turbo, but if I could get away with a new cartridge (saw this in another forum post) I could keep it running for awhile, especially since its a summer car only.

Do a search here. Lots of good info about the turbo repair/replace. You might get by with just replacing the bearings. You can check the bearing play by putting your finger on the impeller and seeing if it has side to side or up and down movement. Then you'll know what you have to do.

If you've got going the whole hog in mind anyway - you have nothing to lose by trying the old "Fill it with Oven Cleaner" trick first.

It quite often sorts em out - and if it doesn't, you've lost nothing but a can of oven cleaner
