    Hissing noise concerns

    I noticed when parked up when tapping the accelerator you hear a hissing noise can anyone enlighten me on what this could be.

    The car does a daily trip of 35miles round trip and so far I have not had any faults with it fingers crossed this is nothing to worry about.

    I did the pedal test before work and no codes were present so I'm a little miffed as to what it could be.

    Any help on this would be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Roy

    Does it sound like a rush of air? could just be the sound of air being sucked through the feed. I get that when I tap the gas. Noticed it alot more after cleaning the TB.

    You know what that sounds very much the same tap the pedal and air rushes strangest thing is it intermittent.

    I had the TB cleaned by VX cause its under warranty just wondering whether to take it back.

    When you say feed do you mean the intake pipe? maybe getting my wires crossed lol

    In that case I think I may take a look at the intake pipe for air leaks etc
