Turbo Bolwn or blowing up? 2003 6.0
Ok, A few weeks ago I noticed it was whistling real loud at idle. It would go away once i reved the engine. Then just a few days a go it started to sound like a vacuum cleaner. It made this strange noise that sounded like "whoooooooo" and it just went up with the revs. Just today the vacuum cleaner noise comes from the "whooo" to a squealing/screeching noise when you rev the engine. It does not happen all the time but is happening more frequently the longer i drive it. The vanes seem to be sweeping and it is putting out boost. My guess is it is a bearing failure. Can i just rebuild it myself? and does the shaft have to be rebalanced? Any help is appreciated. Thanks. Btw,I already parked the truck to avoid further damage.
