    confused Ticking noise from engine??

    Hi all I hope you can help please, my Vectra is causing problems again!!

    It's a 55 plate 1.9 cdti 150 bhp, and on the way home tonight it started making a sort of squealing noise from the engine? It's an odd sort of noise and I can only liken it to when you used to have a cassette deck and when the tape ran out it would make a squeal type noise, that sort of thing but also whirring / high pitch noise too. No other symptoms, seemed ok to be driving, no over temperature reading (even tho it never really gets above 1/4 anyway) not driving particularly badly, no worse than normal?

    The only thing my OH found was when he turned the engine off and then back on, when the key was on the first click over ie lights on dash / waiting for the glow plugs to go out, that's when the ticka-ticka was at its worst, with the noise coming from the top left ish of the engine bay if you're standing at the front of the car.

    I'd really appreciate if anyone can help, it's going to our mechanic tomorrow and having the diagnostic plug in but I don't know if it will show anything as there are no faults / lights on the dash?! This may be the straw that broke the camels back, had so many problems with it I don't know what to do any more!!!

    Thank you so much all in advance...

    What he said, also try driving with nothing eletric switched on. Then turn on lights, heater, heated screen and see if it gets worse. This should help you confirm the squeeky aux belt!!

    If it was at it's worst when the engine is not running, it can't be the belt.

    Probably either air solenoids switching / clicking or a pump
