    Whirring noise when switching off

    Something I've noticed when turning the engine off on my SRi-T, theres like a whirring noise of something slowing down. Very similar to the noise the 2.2 makes when you switch that off.

    I'm not really sure what to put it down to, I thought may be the turbo stopping after being on idle. But its quite a deep sound.

    Er, tis a 02 model 2.0 Turbo 18k miles.

    I'd say it's the turbo too - mine does the same. Sounds almost like a wolf howling.

    Thats not a bad way of describing it I spose. So it's not anything to worry about by the sounds of it then?

    I'd say the power steering to, as soon as you switch the engine off turn the wheel and listen to it slow down quicker. It's surprising how light the steering is still to
