Loud Turbo on the wifey's 2.0T
So yesterday she said she heard a diffrent noise from the car when she was out doing some shopping. Could not describe it exactly. So I hopped in when we went out for some dinner and drop the kids off. I drive with a heavy foot and immediately noticed that the turbo was just screaming, and might mention it sounded good too. LOL
I pulled over and checked the hoses, charge lines and intercooler. I found the factory turbo inlet hose has broken clean off at the turbo inlet. The hose clamp and the broken piece of hose were still clamped to the turbo but the hose was half way over the turbo. I was able to move the hose back over the turbo and take her back home.
One thing is for sure, it sounds sweet like this and reminds me of my Powerstroke.
Anyways, I am typing this from the service department since it is under warranty.
Her Sorento is a 2016, its about 19 months old and has at 47K miles on it. No issues other than this so I'm still pretty happy with it. I think the hose might need a little more silicon content as the one that broke seems brittle and you do not want brittle when something goes in the turbo.
