Whenever I accelerate, I get a whirring sound from my malibu's engine. Here is video to show what I mean, you can hear the sound: Malibu.mp4. I took it to 2 separate auto repair shops today - the first told me that the exhaust valve / gasket on the turbo was leaking, but they weren't equipped to take apart the turbo. The second told me that they couldn't tell what the issue was, and it would cost them $950 just to remove the turbo to poke around and see what the problem is.

Neither of these folks have had extensive experience with Malibu's, so I'm thinking of taking it to a dealer, but they are obviously far more expensive and are going to charge me $180 just to look at it.

Have any of you experienced this whirring issue, and what was the end result?

Any recalls here?

My engine is the Eco Tec, and it's a 2016 Malibu.
