    Default Funny noise.

    Hi all started the car this morning, and had to windscreen and noticed a king of rythmic noise from offside of engine kind of like shh shh shh sonds like a belt as it was in perfect timing with the engine ticking over, dont know how long it has been like that as this as i normally just jump in start and drive, don't think it's making this noise when warm, it was really cold this morning, any ideas what this could be, it's the same side i get the ticking noise from when accelerating.

    Sounds like the water pump, the noise probably disappears when the engine is warm. Happened on mine, changed pump and timing belt and problem solved.

    Injector seals? Was it a chuffing noise, like a steam train?

    May be it's just a dry aux' belt, might be worth just changing the belt and see what happens.
