buzzing noise after booting.

I've noticed recently that if i boot the car (which is quite often lol) then i drive it normal there is a buzzing noise coming from the engine that increases in speed with the revs (if you get what i mean) Someone has suggested that the turbo is on its way out, but to be honest he dont have a "scooby" About "scoobies" but it just got me thinking so i thought i would pick your expert minds on here

Cheers Rich

Re: buzzing noise after booting.

If its the Turbo there are a few things you can look out for. Firstly do you have a boost gauge and if so is it holding boost ok? secondly is the car using oil? Have you had your gearbox or differential fluids changed recently?

Re: buzzing noise after booting.

Its really hard to describe to be honest mate but when the noise starts it increases in pitch when you rev the engine and then drops when you let off the throttle, it does seem to be related some how to the power steering as the noise seems to get worse when turning a corner? I'm going to be having a good look at it at the weekend and see if i can pin point where its coming from, thanks for the reply mate.

Re: buzzing noise after booting.

steering pump could well be low on fluid,that can cause noise..or pully is on its way out..

Id drain it to to get it all out then fill her up to max after you tighened up the pipe you drained it from bleed air in system by letting engine run for a fast idle 2000rpm for a fast 5mins then let it idle and turn steering wheel to full lock either side try not to hit stops till noise goes away should be 2mins or less and let it idle for another 4-5mins and job done but while you bleeding air from system you will here it squeal v normal dont worry it letting air out but while you bleeding air from system its vital you keep resorvoir topped to max as it goes below min you will have to bleed it all again as it will be taking air in then should be perfect bobs you uncle fanny's your aunt
