My car suddenly has this weird sound, when running.
sounds like a vacuumcleaner or something(maybe turbo?)

Make sure the intake isn't clogged sounds like it is clogged. I found a napkin in my breather one time.

If its not clogged then start removing the belts 1 by one, it could be a bearing about to sieze on one of the accessories.
Put it where the intake and exhaut manifolds meet the motor on the left side.
That sounds like a leaking valve cover gasket.

A leaking valve cover gasket will not produce that sound though.
Take the belt off and see.
