Whirring Noise At High Speeds
Posted 04 January 2013 - 01:22 PM
I have a whirring noise at high speeds, doesn't rumble or crack or make any horrible noises, but I do hear a bit of a whir noise (sounds like a fan spinning noise and increasing / decreasing in spins per minute).
Is this normal for an automatic?
I have a 2005 Focus CMAX Zetec 1.6 CVT TDCI, 44k on the clock. as I bought it yesterday I still have warranty on it and so will use it as possible!

Any idea roughly where is it coming from?

sounds more like it is coming from the centre to rear, and it tends to build up as you get to 45 - 50+ but its not a cracking / grinding noise, just sounds like a slow moving fan getting quicker and slower. If I find the right time I will try and record it on the phone, maybe post it up but its not too loud.
The only other noise is that at low speed turning the car specifically left gives a slight grinding noise, but will keep an eye on that...

OK so heard the noise again, being midnight and nice and quiet on the roads, I think I narrowed it down to front end, after careful listening, it sounds more like you or I trying to make a "wind" sound effect with pursed lips and open mouth (not breaking wind, thats something completely different ) as you get faster the wind noise gets louder, and slower, the opposite. Kicks in around 40mph and I could do with going to manual mode and see if its gear related, its not the turbo I dont think as I heard her whistle this morning...
does turning and changing the load on the suspension have any affect?
