    Default Strange blowing sound when accelerating

    Over the last couple of days, I have noticed a sound like someone blowing over the mouth of a bottle. It happens at around 2,500 rpm when accelerating, seems to be from the right hand side of the engine bay (as I am sat in the driving seat). The sound is fairly loud, but there doesn't appear to be any impact (lack of power etc), and it doesn't seem to make a difference if the engine is running hot or cold. Anyone had any similar noise, or an idea of what to check?

    Thanks,

    Leigh

    Mines has a blowing and from what I can tell it is normal however if it replaces the exhaust sound it is possibley the intercooler. Happened to me.

    I can hear it in the cab, it's pretty loud, and definitely a new sound, so I know something's not right

    Well, over the weekend, car started losing power and sound changed to a woosh sound like air escaping), so today it's in the stealers.
    Just had a call to say there was a split in the vacuum pipe. gonna be about £150 to replace

    on another note I've got an agila while mines being fixed, and I feel SO gay in it.

    My wife had a diesel Zafira as a company car and had a similar problem. She could hear the whoosh noise through the air vents though.

    Turned out the turbo was knackered.
