Customer Question
There is a ticking...

There is a ticking noise when I accelerate and when I first start it

Mechanic's Assistant: Where exactly do you think the noise is coming from? And how long has this been going on?

I think its coming from the turbo i checked the injectors and it isnt them and i dont think its low oil pressure from bad o rings in the oil pan because it seems to be coming from only one spot i tried to see if there was an exhaust leak but couldnt find one

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Turbo?

The car is 2003 with just under 150000 miles and as far as i know the turbo is origional

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Turbo yourself? What have you tried so far?

I replaced the coils too so its not them but i havn't done anything with the turbo yet

Did you use a stethoscope on the turbo to see if it was to blame?

no I didn't use a stethiscope yet on the turbo
Volvo Mechanic: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 9 months ago

Is there any way you can try that to confirm it is the source of the noise sense I am not able to hear it in person?
