The last few days, when starting my car up from cold, its sounded shocking.. v.noisey, and making a blowing sound.
I've got a feeling its linked to going over a speedbump at the weekend, ie i heard a big clump/noise as the speedbump hit the middle of my car, or so it seemed.
Anyway, as i said, it sounds like its coming from somewhere at the front, so last night i jacked the car up, and took a look underneath.
I cant see any holes or anything like that, nor could i feel any air blowing out.
The seal thats under the car, but right at the front(has 3 bolts i think) did appear to be leaking something when i first had a look. My mate revved the engine and it looked like a bit of water(really small amount) came out of that seal.. but after that, nothing really. I checked the bolts but they seemed tight/fine.
The only other thing was, it looks like a coil part, just after that bolt really, with some metal mesh or similar wrapped around, a part of this was off, but from memory, its always been like it.
Could it be that seal where the exhaust joins? I just wouldnt have thought it would make such a noise for that..
Any ideas please?
