Harold - I have the same engine in my Scenic and i can hear it whistle when its on boost, its not massively loud and to be fair you need the window down and radio turned off, when you change gear or come off the accelarator you might hear the recirclation valve (dump valve sort of thing), personally i dont think its anything to worry about but hopefully someone with a bit more knowledge will be able to help you out. I guess its hard to say without hearing it, i have to admit though i sometimes think ive heard noises when i probably havent.

Regards

Dave

Harold -


Don't be too worried - all turbos whistle. You said someone thought the turbo was going - where did you take the car to be told this? If I were you I'd get a second opinion from another Renault Dealer - S J Cook / City Motors in Bristol. Bristol Trade Centre, as you know, are not a Renault Dealer.

This would mean your concerns would be logged on the computer - then if your turbo did fail then it would be easier to get a contribution from Renault because you pointed it out before the 3 year warranty is up!

How many miles has the car done?

If you don't like Cooks / City Motors you caould always try Clist & Rattle in Portishead.

I thought the minimum warranty for a second hand car was 3 months. Worth checking! I would contact BTC to find this out - also point out that you were led to believe you had the bal of the 3yr Renault waranty which, as you have found out, you don't!

Have you got the name of the salesman and the original invoice?

Other than that how's the car?:)

You don't give the year of your car but on some Renaults the Halfords air/con top ups cannot be used.
