    Default Finally!!!

    Picked up my Vectra 2.2 dti Sri last night after what seems like an age since i bought it (only last week ).

    Got a quick question, when i change gear there is a weird whistling noise. Is this normal or should i get it looked at? havent owned a diesel for a good few years so thought i'd check here.

    Lovely to drive though and really comfortable.

    Whistling noise? Does it sound more like a whine? Which decreases in pitch as the engine revs die between gear changes?? If so, sounds like the turbo spooling down, and is normal unless its really loud, which could be an exhaust leak etc.

    My 2.2DTi also does that. The ind garage I use have a VX trained technician who looked at it last weekend and said it is normal.

    it is only noticable when i have the window down. I figured it sounded normal as it isnt particularly loud. It changes in pitch as the revs go up and generally only lasts for about a second.

    Defo sounds like turbo whine. Most turbo charged car have this noise, to some degree.

    I wouldn't worry about it.
