Customer Question
I have a 2006 Chrysler...
I have a 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser Convertible that's turbo charged. Last week I started hearing a whistling or whining sound when I accelerate. It doesn't happen in reverse.Is it possible that I have an issue that can be repaired without replacing the entire turbo charger? I've never had this kind of problem in the past. Could something have come loose between the turbo and the manifold or exhaust system. I have a limited aamount of money to pay a lot for a repair. I have had serious medical issues for the past 4 years, so cost is an issue, Thank you, ***** ***** Gillis,***** Apt.230, Key West, FL 33040(###) ###-####**@******.***. I would appreciate any help or advise you can give me.

HI,

Your choices are to either have yours sent out to be rebuilt or install another turbocharger. There are not any simple repairs for them when they start whining and whistling.

Cost wise, it is cheaper to just install a remanufactured unit, which you can get for $358, and then have a mechanic to install it.

Here is one source.

https://www.stockwiseauto.com/a1-cardone-2t-315-turbocharger?gclid=EAIaIQobChMItoXtzq2Z2gIVjrbACh2ctANOEAQYBSABEgIzFfD_BwE&fit_id=11799&Year=2006&Make=Chrysler&Model=PT%20Cruiser&gsID=pxf374121f11799&

I have installed these Reman units from A1 Cardone before and never had one fail prematurely

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
