    help....funny noise

    Hey all, found the forum searching for 'VXR' Turbo problems

    I got an o6 astra VXR, it's started to make a strange noise when i let off the throttle. Sounds like a cross between a rattle and a pigeon....maybe air leaking? I dunno...

    It only happens when moving, not when revved when standing.

    There's nothing immedialtey apparent thats wrong with anything under the bonnet, no holes in the pipes or anthing loose.

    It's in today at a dealership, and my concern is that whatever they find wrong they'll say is not covered by the warranty (just a gut feeling i get from a couple of comments they made)

    Any ideas? Be handy to know in advance if it's a common fault. . .


    thanks in advance

    Does it sound like a turkey warble sound????

    If so its more than likely the oe recirc valve in the turbo is either split or stuck open/closed.

    Mine started doing this the day we were going to GTi in France, had to plumb in a Bailey DV as a temp solution which cured it.

    I've just ordered the uprated recirc valve from Regals so will be fitting it tomorrow

    go to the vxronline website and do a search on 'turkey', there is loads written about this problem. Search for my name and you will see a write up I have done after some investigation. The GSi doesn't have this problem but loads of VXR are reporting it. Mine has been to dealers a few times for it
    Be Happy
