In Topic: Whoosing Noise, No Lack Of Power

02 December 2014 - 06:58 PM

Thanks guys. had a good look, and there is a small split in the inner elbow of the top hose going to the EGR valve location. Its only at most 10mm in length, and can only be seen if the hose is squeezed.  Must be bulging under boost pressure (the noise is only above 2000rpm), and air escaping. Would it be safe to tape it up with duct tape, whilst i wait for the new one, or will that cause probs. Been trying to drive whilst keeping revs down today, or does it not matter too much?

I did think if these hose got a split, then the car would be completely gutless....

Its not a silver calcium, just one to tide me over as I only intend on keeping the car a couple more months or so. Niggly things always going wrong and shes getting on a bit, done over 155000 miles now. I have been offered a 61 plate cmax, 2.0tdci titanium with the power shift box, done 15000 mile. It will be ex motability, but the price seems good for it. Anyone any experience with the 2.0tdci and the power shift box?

Ok, solved. Everything caused by a knacked battery. Once replaced all issues resolved. It seems after chatting to some mechanics, that sometimes the abs or glow plug light flashes when the battery is low. It seems that mine had decided not to hold a charge anymore. Its also cured some other niggly issues. Thanks to all who posted suggestions.

Ok something new.... this morning it was cranking very slow, but it did start. Ran fine on way to work. Left work tonight, same thing, so im thinking batteys knacked although I did notice that the headlights were coming on during the slow cranking even though the lights were switched off. Got it home and tried a restart, and still the same. So hot or cold there is slow cranking, with the headlights flashing, and a clicking noise. It had a new starter and alternator about a year ago. When running, I can put it under alot of electrical load with no problems at all.

Any ideas

James. It does this hot or cold anyway. If this is the issue, is there anything I can do about it. Does it affect the abs itself?

btw whats the short loom...
