    screaming turbo, help!

    Please help! my 1998 Discovery 300 TDI started screaming on the accelerate over 2000 revs, sounds like high pitched garden strimmer. Have got a turbo even though I can't find any obvious problems with the existing one yet. If it is the turbo will it damage the engine to run it?

    How Do I? 1986 Defender Turbo Problems
