    Default Help with my Astra....

    Hope you don't mind me asking for help with my astra on here, but I've not had much luck on the astraowners club forum

    Its a 2007 1.7CDTi [100] Design

    So, had my car a week and have a couple of noises
    that I'm not sure whether I should get checked out....

    1. When changing
    gear after moderate to hard acceleration, engine makes a noise that sounds like
    a quiet dump valve. As far as I'm aware, diesels don't have dump valves, so only
    thing I can think is that a boost pipe or something has a hole in????

    2.
    When coming to a stop and when moving off again there's a clunk. It sounds like
    there's a football in the boot and is banging around when I stop and then start
    again

    Am I being paranoid?

    Is the spare wheel locked down in the boot?
    Lois Griffin: Peter! You're bribing your daughter with a car?

    As said, the dump valve noise is normal
    make sure everything is secure in the boot etc.
