I have a LC Amazon VX, 1997 4.2TD. Under load, you can hear the turbocharger whistle as normal, but there is also a louder noise, a sort of squeaking as if air is escaping past a joint from a rubber hose. This noise changes pitch as the load increase/decreases. I have had a good look and inspected the hose from the turbo to the plenum chamber, but it seems OK. Does anybody have any idea what it could be. It is fairly loud, and I have ruled out the mechanics of the turbo as there is no loss in power or excess smoke.

Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Simon
