think P0400 is egr valve code.i would do a compression check.depending what the oil is like if its black or not i mean mine on 208,000 miles and still going,but read the piston rings on the 1.8 was of a cheap brand.dose it smoke on startup or if you in gear n go down a hill in gear with foot off throttle then at bottom of hill hit the throttle dose it puff blue smoke??i treated mine to a wyns engine flush last oil change

I will try the down hill suggestion. Not seen that before.
Are you talking of engine braking, and then floor it?

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Is it an engine related noise?

Out of shape tyres can produce a humming noise like a worn wheel bearing.


Many thanks for your reply.
Will swopping the wheels front to back help me?
