Customer Question

Have a 2006 Dodge Ram pickup, 5.9 Cummins, 193,000 miles. Truck used to run very quiet and only noise from turbo was normal high pitched turbo whine. Have developed a noise whenever accelerating that sounds like excessively loud belt chatter/ air leak. Happens when turbo is put under load. As soon as accelerator is released or engine is unloaded, noise stops. Diagnosing the problem from the info I have given you, might this have something to do with the waste gate solenoid? I haven't been able to find any air leaks in the area of the turbo.

Expert:  roy replied 5 months ago.

it is in front of the radiator for the turbo. it looks like a radiator but is full of positive pressure from the turbo. it cools the air to go back into the motor
