    Any abnormal noise from a turbo is very bad.

    From the interweb there is little we can do. You will have to remove the turbo inlet pipe and exhaust down pipe and look for damage to the wheels and housings..........or take the car to a competent mechanic.

    Not without more details. Could be condensation,antifreeze or oil. Each has a different smell and color.
