Hey folks,

Ok my car has always made this strange crying noise since new, I've heard a few of the 200 wedge shapped cars doing it. It does it when it's turned off. (Even with the battery disconnected) It's like a sad cow type noise? and lasts for about 3 seconds.

Is it something to do with the pressure in the fuel tank being released?

I'm just curious what makes the noise?

Many thanks!

p.s My car is a 214 (1992)

Nope, car doesnt have air con. It usually does it after it's been out and has just come back. Then it does it about three times over the next 20 or so minutes.

I swear hes just crying to go back out! :p

mine ticks very quickly after I turn it off, which is the stepper motor resetting I believe

Does anyone know if there is a breather of some sort of the fuel tank or pump or something that is operated by pressure. It can't be electrical because it still does even if you dont have the battery connected.

Someone must know... I've heard loads of them do it! (only the wedge shape ones, never heard a bubble do it) :confused:

I seem to remember the heater controls are operated by engine vacuum. Sounds like they are relaxing when the vacumm is slowly lost. Just a thought.
