ok guys heres a long story short.

got my car back from the tuners a week ago, was runing superbly, wasnt missing a beat. nyway yesterday im taking the car out of the driveway, i give it a bit of a hit, and once d revs reached around 4000+ it made dis loud screeching noise. so i backed off and geared up. tried it in second gear and same thing. anyway granny shifted for a few minutes tried giving it a hit again, and the noise was gone for the rest of the trip. parked the car at the shops for bout 45mins, and when i got back in it and drove off, it did d same problem for d first 5 mins of driving den disapeared.

i thought maybe its d turbo, however, no loss of oil or any smoke. also if it was the turbo, i assumed d noise would be constant, not leave after 5 mins of driving. anyone got anyyyy ideas what it could be???

If its the stock turbo the turbo bearings are most likely shot.

I had the same thing 6 weeks ago. As soon as the turbo spooled to any decent sort of rotational speed it made a very very loud "screeching" sound.

It happened instantly. No warning at all. I reckon it sounds more like a crowd at the a fireworks display. eg a "wooooooooo" sound.

Volume is also very loud. I thought I ran over a cat the first time it did it and it got jammed under the car.

When I removed the turbo from the vehicle I could feel a bit of roughness in the bearings but not that excessive. Shaft play was also minimal.

The seals were perfect, no smoke, no water or oil loss. The only fault was worn bearings.

As a test you can idle the car with the bonnet open and rev it by pushing on the throttle whilst standing over the turbo. If you hear an unusual roughness and louder than normal whining noise coming from the turbo then thats probably it.

If your lucky it might just be the alternator belt. My turbo was only 70,000kms but it had been boosted at 12psi for about a year. Bearings are a weak point for the stock turbo probably due to the very high rpms of small diameter turbines. Its not an uncommon fault. If you catch it early enough the ceramic fins will still be okay.

Best of luck.

If you are saying the noise goes away when hot then it could be one of the gearbox bearings or input shaft bearings getting a bit worn.

I have this problem also, however its only when the gearbox and the oil are cold. Cold mornings are the worst.

After 1km down the street its gone.

To test this just rev it up in neutral to 4000 rpm and if the noise does'nt appear (compared to in gear) then that's the problem.

If it is a gearbox bearing I would just ignore it or maybe change the gearbox oil.

thanx for d replies guys. will get d belts checked out etc. and i dont think its the gearbox, because the noise can also be heard by reving it hard in neutral before taking it for a drive. im hoping its a belt. and as for mods, i got:

Apexi pFC, bosch 044 pump, z32 afm, 3" turbo back exhaust, arc filter, fmic, hks evc3,

also, if it was the turbos bearing i dont think the noise would go away after a while. think it might be either a belt, or possible throttle related as sumone pointed out. will look into it asap. any more ideas would be appreciated.

thanks guys

    • The old "Gentleman's agreement".  They all kept publishing that number to avoid government intervention. They all kept pushing over it to be quicker than the other guy.   It's why I'll say it's smart the Gen4 Supra was more suited/targetted to taking on freeway runs, than taking on the GTR directly. Nissan and Yoda rivalry slightly more apart receiving a little less criticism compared to the Holden Vs Ford in the years gone by with the likes of the GTHO etc.
    • The GTT's Neo actually did produce ~206kW at the flywheel. The 34GTR's 26 really did not produce 206kW at the flywheel. By the time the 34 came around the 26 was likely up around 230-240 kW, and probably could have been more. The Japanese manufacturer's had an agreement to not sell any cars that made more than 206kW (actuall, their agreement was expressed in the stupid non-metric German ps units which is essentially horsepower, and the numerical value in the agreement was 280ps). So Evos, Supras, GTRs, 3000GTs, and so on, all had official 206kW power outputs published, and all made variously larger numbers than that. Even the R32 GTR made a decent margin over the official number, all the way back in 1989. As you'd bloody well hope for a TT 2.6l 24v engine running ~12psi of boost.
    • See, Euro trash. Ha ha ha. And I have to say, you nearly nailed the description of yourself. But you can't be elitist if you can't look down on people. Or see what's on top of the Fridge.
    • Manufacturers quote power at the engine, we quote power at the wheels, which will always be lower due to drivetrain losses.  
    • As someone with an EV, who also does Bris to Sydney road trips, I can get from Bris to Syd in the same time, and a shit tonne cheaper in the EV vs the Petrol car.   It's a slight change for SOME people in how you'd do the trip, but in reality, even for the cranky people who just want to haul ass and only stop once, it's still doable in the EV, it might make the people who are so dead set on pretending their in an F1 race pit stop take another 30 minutes to get get to Sydney. Then there's all the people who do a road trip like that over 2 days. Those people can charge the car over night! 😮 zero impact then!!! 😮   and then running around the city, from 0-100 it's like driving a gas guzzling sports car, with it always in gear for power, except, you pay only $3 / 100km to drive, when driving spiritedly! considering fuel around $2 a litre, it means still $9 cheaper per / 100km than a Hybrid Camry... (And I have a lot of experience on the Hybrid Toyodas too. Good cars, wanting the Hybrid Fortuner or Prado when it comes out for the missus). Driving the EV around, the other thing I never spend time in my life doing, is going somewhere to fuel up.    I will agree 100% EVs are not for everyone.  In fact, those who don't do lots of KMs each week, I'd tell them to be buying a Hybrid or full ICE. If you want a track/race car, ICE.   The other thing when everyone races about long road trips and EVs, the reality is, people rarely take them. Most families, might do a Bris to Sydney style trip ONCE every four or five years. I used to do that trip, plus add to Canberra, and Batemans Bay in the same trip. And by used to, I'd do that about 3 or 4 times a year, for a few years straight. Ya know what I do now? I get on a bus. And by bus, I mean one that holds over 100 people, and can do about 900kmh. f**k boring road trips!         Topic of Camrys being driven by scary people, I see wayyyy less of that in Brisbane. In fact, I'll say in Bris I don't look for any vehicles in particular except for old 4WDs like GQ or 80 series cruisers, and modern dual cabs. They're often maniacs. Other than that, every other car on the road has a 50 to 75% chance they're high, using a phone, asleep at the wheel, or just a f**king idiot with no perception of the world outside of them. Oh, actually, I do keep an eye out for the white Toyota Camrys. Mainly because they put sore loser lights in them. If they get beaten in a drag race or overtaken on the freeway, they start flashing red and blue!
