Hi chaps, my car has just started making a air rushing noise when under load sounds like it's sucking air, any ideas?

Cheers

You must say if your car is a petrol, diesel, NA or turbo, for anyone to help, the type of engine and capacity might be useful too, "focus" and "2007" is not enough to go on

Sounds like the same problem I had, as detailed in my thread "Hissing Noise".

Having just done it, I can say it's not a particularly difficult job, requiring no tools other than a flat blade screwdriver.

 

Given the cost of the parts  :o , if you can, then save yourself some cash, by doing it yourself.

 

A couple of things to note.

 

1. Andrew Page don't stock the item (nor is it on their order list), so if you want it immediately, it's a main agent job.

 

2. The top rubber pipe isn't available from the main agent, on its own. It comes with the steel intermediate pipe, and the price is (wait for it) over £50:o

 

Fitting it requires the moving of (though not the draining of) the expansion tank. This is made easier if you insert a slender blade (eg. a thin and wide screwdriver) between the plastic slot and the metal tang.

 

When replacing the expansion tank, fit it to the rear tang (the one parallel with the firewall), before fitting it to the offside tang (the one parallel with the wing).

 

The whole job shouldn't take more than 15 minutes.

It goes without saying (but I'll say it anyway :) ) that, before buying the replacement part, you should determine that the part is indeed faulty.

Did you tell them you suspected a split in the inter-cooler pipe?

 

You can check it yourself, without using any tools.

 

Remove the large flat plastic engine cover (the one you can see the oil filler cap through the middle of), by pulling upwards in each corner. It's only held in place by four push fittings, like pop fasteners.

 

Once the cover is off, take a look on the drivers side, between the engine and the expansion tank.

 

You will see a black metal pipe, with a sensor on the top.

 

Trace this pipe toward the firewall, and it turns into a rubber pipe, which turns through 90 degrees to the right, where it is attached, with a Jubilee clip, to the turbo.

 

Examine this rubber pipe closely, for any splits, especially on the inside and outside of the curve.

You don't need to get under the car, because the turbo is at the top of the engine.

 

It's the shiny thing at the rear of the engine, in the middle, just under the windscreen.

I think my engine is different to yours mate cos I couldn't find the pipe you mentioned and when I look for turbo and did a search on Google it looks like it's near the manifold in bottom left.
