Engine noise when warm

Recommended Posts

 Hi I have just bought a mk3 focus 1.6 & done about 2k since I have had it the mileage on it is 54k I have noticed there is a noise like a turbo noise whistling every 2 seconds on tick over when the car is warm as you can does anyone know what this could be ? 

Thanks in advance

Which 1.6?  Petrol Ti-VCT?  It's likely to be the purge valve solenoid operating if it's an electrical type whine.

Oh ok, diesels don't have a purge valve so its not that lol.

Are you noticing any other problems or just this noise?
