    Got my car back!!!

    Got my GSi back after 5 days at Vaux. They replaced the water pump, rollers and tensioners. Sounds good now. Really quiet. Took a while to get the bits and vaux didn't have a car, so they got Enterprise to pick me up and I got a 55 SXi Astra!! So I was well happy. Full marks to vaux!!

    What did it sound like when it was making the noise then?? Mines got a hight pitched noise when I rev it, like what tight belts sound like... Hope that is normal lol

    The sound it was making was a whirring (??) sound. When I first got the car, I thought it was just the normal sound, but as soon as a vaux tech said the pump was worn the noise was obvious. The noise was only apparent when idling. Yours sounds like it needs looking at.

    All the work was done under warrenty and my car is a MKIV.
