Hey! Just had a new front end on my exhaust coz the last 1 was screwed. Now there's a wierd whisteling noise comin from my engine bay when I exceed a certain rpm in my lower gears. There's also a noise when idle kinda like little hissing squirts of air comin from my engine block. Any1 know what this is? Should I take it back to where the exhaust was fitted?
Any help would be great as this is the first time i've done anything like this.
Cheers
Adam

Could be a very small air leak on your exhaust manifold?

Have a look in the engine bay while the engine is on and see if you can locate it...

This is almost certainly your exhaust manifold gasket.
Mate had this problem on his Lancer 1.3, replaced the gasket and no problems.
Only costs a couple of quid to replace but if you paid a garage to do it and they didnt do it properly, bring it straight back and dont leave the place until your satisfied.

It's a piece of pi$$ to do yourself :) I've done it on mine and it doesn't take very long and is easy to do as long as you can get the exhaust manifold bolts undone...

By f'in about with my exhaust you have f'ed up my exhaust manifold gasket, that was perfectly fine when I brought the car in, if it wasn't you would have mentioned it before you fitted my exhaust, u money grabbing sons of guns.

The part is this much from Rover now fix it !!!! :twak: :guns3:

Or something like that?

p.s. Sorry not in a great mood hope it don't show too much
