1.2 dig-T engine noise

Post by chrisw99 » Mon Oct 16, 2017 4:34 pm

Modern engines make so many new noises compared to yesteryear I never know what is right or wrong.

My J11 is due for it's 3rd service/1st MOT next week, and I was wondering about the "wooooo" whining noise when you start the engine and then rev it gently when idle and out of gear, as I've just recorded here...

Can someone tell me if all 1.2 J11s do this. Mine has since the day I got it, but seems a bit louder recently so I was curious.

Sounds like a noisy alternator bearing to me - whether it is normal or not, I have no idea, but I am sure your dealer will tell you that it is regardless....

They already did say it was normal when I bought it. But I'm not so sure

Well mind's been in for a new cam-chain tensioner recently and is also making the same noise. I therefore assume it's normal as if anything were wrong they would have been able to do it as warranty covered work.
