Question about Acura CL

1 Answer

Hi, I have an Astra 1.7cdti 53 plate, the problem is a shreaking noise at around 2-3000 rpm when the accelerator is pressed, it sounds like its sucking air in from somewhere and it smokes. Several people have told me its the turbo. Any thoughts? Thanks, Tim.

There is always a little movement in the driveshaft, but a drive shaft that has lost its weights and that has come off balance can cause noise and vibration, should also inspect differential as this can also cause noise and vibration

Acceleration noise engine

if the noise sounds like nuts in a tin can rattling around then it will be detonation . It is spontaneous combustion from air /fuel mixture that is to lean and timing out of adjustment ( normally too far advanced). If it is heavy knocks that is same as engine rpm increase the it may be bearings.

My car makes a droning or humming sound around 2000 rpm along with vibration but it goes away as soon as I increase the speed or come to a stop.

could be the timing belt tensioner. with the timing casing removed place a socket extension bar on some metal then to your ear as it will help you locate the noise. be careful tho. failing that big end shells i would check. hope this helps

Sounds like an Exhaust Manifold leak on only one cylinder. The Gasket is probably blown out. Check around where manifold is bolted to the engine. Any leaks are usually evident by a black sooty deposit.
