My Mk7 Makes A Hooting Noise..

10 posts in this topic

My car makes a hooting (like an owl) noise when I turn the engine off. I can't understand what it could be? It's serviced regularly, I keep everything under the bonnet topped up & it passed its mot with flying colours. It happens when I've been driving for more than about 10 - 15 minutes. I pull up & turn off the engine & it hoot's at regular intervals about 4 or 5 times? Sometimes it doesn't happen but I'd say 6 times out of 10 it does. It drives perfectly?

Have you changed the owl and filter recently?

Sorry, couldn't resist.

I am wondering if it's hot air escaping from somewhere?

...also try re-seating the cap on the expansion tank in case it's coming from there.

;) I see what you did there

That could be a cause, I'm gonna get a mate to turn it off while I look around the engine bay to try & narrow it down.
