A strange noise?

Post by Goldenoldy » Thu May 16, 2019 8:07 pm

Hi all. Mine is a2011 petrol, 93000 mls. A week ago the car, when static and starting from cold, engine revs a bit, I guess it’s like an automatic choke? As this happens its started to make a strange sound. The wife says from outside it’s a low squeal. You hear it over the engine sound. Rev a bit and it goes, as soon as the initial higher revs settle down it goes. Once your moving it’s not there. I know what a loose slipping fan belt sounds like and I don’t think this is that. Any thoughts welcome.

I had the same syptoms on a Ford once and it was the alternator on the way out. Suggest you get it checked out ASAP.
