Hyundai i30 2009: Whining noise in diesel

Asked by Dean

I have a 2009 Hyundai i30 manual diesel wagon that I have owned since 50,000 km. At 55,000 km the turbo developed the distinct whine, which I found out was a sign of an imminent failure. I fought with Hyundai to have the turbo replaced for months and finally had it replaced at 95,000 km. I have now done 155,000 km and the turbo is starting to make the same noise again. I have read that turbo failures are often caused by other problems with the engine. Hyundai only replaced the turbo under warranty and didn't do any investigation. I've been told I would need to spend up to $4000 to have a full inspection and replacement done to determine what is causing the turbo to fail. The car is well out of warranty. What should I do from here?

Turbos can fail for a variety of reasons, but one that is common is the oil supply. That's not to say that that's what's wrong with your car. You could have your car checked by a turbo specialist.
