Question

HI, Im having a n80 hilux (2020 model). It has a 2.8l 1GD-FTV engine.   At around 4500kms the Turbo started to whistle very loud and now have passed even 15,000kms and still its there. This still have warrenty left so i took this to the dealer in colombo and even in kandy but yet they think its normal (they even did scans and chekups) but all the 8th gen hilux owners know for a fact that its not normal and their vehicles doesnt have such a sound. Just take a look and tell me your opinion. Btw 0 respect to Toy#ta L#nka. --___--

That is not normal...it is hard to hear the exact type of sound form inside the cabin...that could be somethinglike the air ducts leaking or if it a sireny whistle then there is something wrong on the compressor side of the turbo charger..could be that the bearign has gone and the blades are having too much play and or unbalanced or even a bent blade. 

You say the car is under warranty....does that mean that you cannot have anyone else worked on it (without voiding the warranty) ? There are 4x4 and Turbo specialists lke BN who could tell you exactly what is wrong with it...

Sound like a failing turbo but it's unusual for a new car with such low mileage. Obviously not normal to me.

Edit: Maybe it's normal?

Oh. Didn't realize it's the same truck. Even with the warranty you could still get a second opinion from some other reputed place I guess.
