    Default Egnine sounds grumbly

    Hi there,

    I bought my Vectra C 3 weeks ago (1.8 LS petrol) and need some advice.

    2 I have a sort of knocking and grumbling sound when putting the engine under load between 2000-3500ish (is this normal). It sounds almost diesel like and there is a sort of sucking wheezing sound when you rev ithe engine and then back off.

    Thanks

    I had something similar back in the day of the 1.8sxi, turned out to be the water pump being goosed. The impellor wasnt moving freely, thus causing the sounds, that to me sounded like something in the cambelt region!

    The sucking wheezing sound, sounds like an air leek of some sort maybe?? I'd get it checked sharpish either way.

    A good tip my old man taught me is to locate roughly where it is under the bonnet, then use a long screwdriver, and put the tip of it where the noise is coming from. Stick your ear to the plastic end, and you can hear it more clearly, and pinpoint it better.

    However you do look like a bit of a retard doing it!!!
