    Default dull noise at motorway speeds

    Can anyone help me. i drive a 03 2.0 dti. For a while now i've been getting a sort of low wining rumbling noise from the engine at motorway speeds. Only really happens about 2500 rpm and above, but the faster you go, the lowder it gets. There also seems to be a slight vibration coming through the floor pan on the driver side when the noise starts. the noise is not continuose, it sort of comes on for a second and goes off for a second until you drop below say 70mph. Been to garage, but with little sucsess. CAN ANYBODY HELP PLEASE. scared the engine is going to blow. Many thanks.

    I am not sure but i don't think this is engine related, i would look more at drive shaft CV joints and wheel /tyre especially if it is SPEED dependant, we know there are "issues" with wheel bearings on some early cars and i have also had my tyres reversed on the rims to clear a noise up as has a friend of mine on his 03 veccy 2.0 DTI club, If it was engine related it would do it at all speeds but only in the rev range if you see what i mean HTH !!!

    Back in a V6 !!!!!!!!!!!! And lovin it !!!

    Have a look at this, regarding recalls. Might be worth investigating further? See if your VIN number falls into the range.
