about two weeks ago my trusty volvo 940 turbo started to sound
strange. the sound, a rhythmic whirring noise, occurs only when
accelerating. I canít produce it when I just rev the engine while
I think that instead of the (normally very soft) whining of the turbo,
I now get a sound which sounds from the outside surprisingly like an
old vw beetle or vw bus engine.
the only abnormal thing is the sound. the car accelerates and
generally behaves like before. I donít think Iím missing any power or
acceleration. nor does it consume more gas (thank heavens for that!).
a visual check of the engine compartment yields no sooty stains
anywhere near the exhaust pipes or so.
has anybody out there a clue or even experienced the same? Iím
somewhat at loss here.
thanks a lot!
