    Engine Noise?

    Hi Lads,

    When on Idle, my engine makes a whine, it sounds like it is coming from the exhaust manifold and not the timing belt, as soon as you rev it the noise dissapears. Could it be a pin hole in the exhaust manifold?

    its an X20XEV btw.

    Ta!

    I also have a whine which is coming from the aux belt systemk, replaced the alternator, no luck, today changed the idler wheel and still the whine continues. That only leaves the air con pump. Changed the belt also still can't get rid of the whine, its not a real problem just an annoyance.

    Im gonna check the alt belt tonight Danny, I think im gonna change the lot this week i.e. belt wise as my boss had his cambelt snap this morning on his Laguna, now I don't believe in "signs" but if that isn't a big enough sign telling me to change the belts then I don't know what is!!!!
