    Default what the hell is it ??

    just bought a vectra 2.0 gls 96 and havent bought a manual yet little bit more technical than a mk2 golf arent they but i got it home the next day i started it it made a kind of exhaust blowing noise and it come from the round plastic thing behind the battery as far as i can make out its maybe a vacume of some sort but after a minuet of running it stops making the noise and is normal is this repairable and would it make a diffrence to performance and are they expensive to replace.

    Hi mate..

    What you can hear is the air injection pump pushing air into the emmisions system..this is all perfectly normal and nothing to worry about..it cuts out after a few minutes when the emmisions are at a level that won't kill your catalyser..

    welcome to the forum mate..

    Hi there and welcome , you had me worried for a minute I thought that you had got one or two broken exhaust manifold studs for a minute, they break on the number one cylinder,
