Weird Sound Once Engine Knocked Off

7 posts in this topic

Has anyone noticed a strange squeaking noise for about 3 seconds after engine knocked off?

It sounds like a hamster on a wheel going round! That's the only way I can describe it!

I have a Zetec S TDCI 2011

Thanks in advance!

It's been discussed a few times but I don't believe there's ever been a definitive answer.

You're probably right and it's just the hamsters catching their breath!

I've always assumed that the noise is the flaps in the ventilatiion system behind the dash motoring back to their 'rest' position.

I thought it was the EGR valve cleaning cycle?

Not everyone has climate control though.
