When we start the car in you hear the turbo whine and then after a minute it stops. It also kicks in during the drive without even asking for it (accelerating).

2002 Volkswagen Beetle Question: Is the turbo suppose to whine when to start the engine?

You may have a problem with the turbo control allowing boost when it's not necessary. Get it checked ASAP to avoid damage to the engine or turbo system.

Hello, did you ever have this checked? My vehicle has the same issue, it whines when I start the vehicle, but on hard throttle the turbo comes on. (This I presume to be normal)
