Air Blowing / Whistling Noise

Hi guys,

I am getting a whistling noise from the top of the engine during acceleration between 2,500 and 4,000rpm. I think this is effecting the power of the car but I am not quite sure as if I accelerate too much the engine malfunction light comes on until I turn the car off and on again.

I have check the air pipes to and from the Turbo and these are secure but I cannot get underneath to see if there are any cut or slits running through the pipes.

Double check the top intake pipe as they known to split, put you hand under pipe and check for a split or oily patch indicating air leakage.

Hi,

On my 2009 2.0TDCI i have had almost a whooshing noise on heavy acceleration, on inspecting the usual pipes I have discovered a small oil leak on the Intercooler pipe that goes to the turbo at the back of the engine block. Didn't manage to get a proper check done as its tight under the car and only quickly jacked it up, plan to do a proper check soon.

Definitely worth checking all the pipes for splits

Hi Guys

Thanks for your responses. I managed to take it to a garage and get this all repaired. Like others i thought the worst and when I got told it was part of the turbo i thought it was time for a loan!!

Luckily the whistling was caused by a 3 inch split running along the turbo inlet pipe (the thick black right angle pipe on the left of the turbo) which cost £60 from Ford and £20 to fit. Now the car works like a dream.

I just thought id let you all know.

Well the car went in for its service yesterday and I got them to check all around the pipes at the back of the engine, it turns out that a jubilee clip had worked its way lose therefore this was where my whooshing and oil was leaking from.

All tightened up now and all pipes are in good working order with no splits :)
