I might have asked this a long time ago but hey ho. When I first got my car it would only make the weeping noise when you turn the engine of after a long journey. Well in a lazy moment yesterday I drive the 500yds to the shop and it did the same weeping noise that was the first time the car had moved all day. So my question is what the heck is the weeping noise and is it bad that it now does it after a short journey

It could be the ari-con senser that is behind the trim panel to the left of your left knee (you will see a small grate/air panel)

I had this problem with mine it whined like a !Removed! and drove me completely batty till I found this forum guide

You don't even have the have the engine running I think, sometimes I'm sure I've done it just on ignition.
Completely normal from what I've read, but yet no explanation of what it is...

Always does it when the engine has been running and I turn it off just after a long journey normally

It's a loud weeping noise and it's definitely coming from outside the cabin

Is it particularly loud noise? I've noticed modern engines do make funny noises after they are turned off, mine and my dad's diesels included.

I always assumed its just the engine "sorting itself out" as it where. Did a quick google and apparently the common source of the noise is an EGR valve going through a cleaning cycle.

If its noticeably loud or you are worried about it, its always worth getting it checked though.

Not really worried about it as its always done it just after a long journey not like it is now after a short journey

Is it like this? (Around 0:49 as the engine goes off)



If so, I've always known mine to do that sort of thing, even after short journeys.

Mine does something similar,sounds like it is in the cabin. I have always assumed it is the vent flaps motoring back to a default position and don't worry about it.
