  • Help! I've a pigeon under my bonet!

    Hi All

    Not sure if its the standard dump of exhaust gasses or something worse.


    Don't want to say turket noise either so its a cross between a turkey and a pigeon when im changing thru gears.

    If im hooning it say in 3rd for a while and switch to 4th my pigeon churps up, what could it be? dodgy gear box??

    Might just be the recirc working or it's got a hole in or you have a vac hose off. Check down the back of the block for some black hoses pencil thin - one might be off.

        either loose hose or the recirc valve is split

          doh doh doh!!!

          cant find the loose hose, engine was 2 hot to be touching stuff

          what should the recirc valve sound like normally?

            are you sure the pipe hasn`t blown off ? it`s in an awkward place and hard to see unless you know where exactly to look , some call it pigeon sound , some call it turkey noise , i`de call it vic and bobs dove from above as it`s more of a coo ing sound

            once it`s cooled down stand in front of engine , lean over and put your hand down and feel for 2 thin pipes that are close together , once you find them follow the pipes to the right , they seperate from each other i little bit but both should be connect to a small elbow joint .
            hopefully one isn`t connected , i say this because it means you`ve found the problem which is an easy fix , if they`re both connected then it does sound like a hose has split and can be harder to locate

            hope that made sense
