    Default Diesel engines

    I asked before the difference between a CDTi and a DTi but now i want to ask about the DTi engine.

    Basically i've noticed that the 2.0 DTi engine sounds different to my 2.2 DTi in the fact that it makes a kind of hissing noise when you release the accelerator.

    It's similar to that heard on the CDTi

    my 2.2 dti makes that sound,a sort of 'tissssss' sound, i think its the wastegate opening and letting out the pressure from the turbo but not too sure.

    Aye man it's brilliant!

    Even on a cold start it's perfect. My 2.2 petrol always made an annoying whining sound when it was started either first thing in the morning or after being switched off for a few hours

    My dad drove mine for the first time the other night and said it's much quieter and smoother than the petrol.

    Now i've gone diesel i won't be going back to petrol. I've managed to convince a guy from work to get a diesel. He's been looking for a diesel auto Signum

    They are 90 quid fae Halfords. Was speaking to a couple of guys about it and they said it wouldn't make much difference in the speed, but would make it much louder!!!

    I'll consider one after xmas though. There's quite a few things i want once i can afford them!!!!!!
