    Default cdti150 air whoosh noise!!

    noticed this air whoosh noise when giving it a rev or driving whilst hard excelerating, either air blowing in or out somewhere? seems to be near the air filter box, had this with our other vectra but much louder it was under warranty and was a turbo pipe, had a poke around but not seen any split hoses anywhere, new air filter also fitted, anyone any ideas?

    thanks Ronnie

    The split might be really small, not enough to cause problems but enough to hear the air escaping.

    Chances are it's the u bend intercooler pipe which you can see unless you take your splash cover off an crawl underneath all it needs is a tiny split to make any noise as 22psi is quite a but of pressure especially with high flow

    cheers guys, the cover was off earlier today too when the oil was changed and it was on a ramp, doing the front pads in the morning so will have a looky, pain in the neck as you need another pair of hands, well feet to give it a rev, but I think it has lost a little Ooomphh since the noise
