Question 123 85 300D

I just purchased "85" 300D turbodiesel and i notice a whistle when driving. disappears with acceleration. Is it coming from the turbo intake/or output. is it something i need to be concerned about and get right on it. if so how expensive (average ballpark) is it to remedy. thanks , mitt

Sounds like a pre-purchase inspection would have been helpful. I find the $50 cost to be a good value--having an experienced eye look over the entire car. Maybe you could still get one done or does Michigan require an inspection before issuing tags?

turbo problem?

It was pretty subtle, did not notice it when initially driving the car. it does not affect performance. how big a problem is this and what will it cost to fix?

How loud is it and can you tell where it's coming from?

It is a whistle, high pitch, diminishes with acceleration is not present with idle. appears to be associated with turbo, possibly intake or output.
