Re: corsa 1.3cdti whining. any ideas?

Is it road speed related or engine speed related?

If it is engine speed related it could be worn bearings on your alternator?

if it only makes the noise when you are driving it could be gearbox or drivetrain related.
Again if the noise is only when your driving does the pitch increase in whine the faster you go or does the whining 'tone' drop when you change up a gear? Again gearbox related?

I get a whining sound from my car but it is usually the pupils  big_smile

More seriously could it be the turbo? A friend had a Toyota Yaris which I drove occasionally and it did something similar and it was the turbo.

its road speed related. it is there constantly what ever speed, until you come off gas or depress the clutch.

I think its the turbo they whine when they are not controlling the air flow correctly u should have got the 1.2 petrol much better than the diesal.

True but then  the servicing costs more and the repairs are more expensive it out weighs the fuel compsumption benefits.

Re: corsa 1.3cdti whining. any ideas?

its road speed related. it is there constantly what ever speed, until you come off gas or depress the clutch.

The thing is, if you take your foot off the gas, and presumably when you put the clutch down you are also taking your foot off the gas the engine revs are dropping and also the belt driving your alternator/pumps is also slowing, so any bearing noise will be hard to hear. It could also still be a gearbox issue too!

I would take it to the dealership for them to have a listen, it won't cost you anything, they will either tell you straight away what they reckon or tell you to let it 'develop'!

It might not really be anything at all other than the engine/gearbox wearing/ageing, at the end of the day the sound of your car will alter over time the more miles you pile on etc
