Do waste gates chatter


Recommended Posts

When I get into the boost range I get a noise that sounds like air escaping or something loose in my exhaust near the engine.

 

I guess you would have to hear it to diagnose but I thought maybe the waste gate spring would make like a rattle kind of sound.

technically they could chatter, if the turbo had a huge amount of inertia and was running high boost with no dump valve.

but its not the noise that everyone thinks it is, as mentioned earlier its the flow refersing thru the compressor and going into surge.

 

as for ur noise, check all your hoses and jubilee clips for leaks etc

but check the noise ur getting isnt detonation or ur in shit it sound like u have ball bearings rattling around on the crown of the piston, its a NASTY sound!
