  • Sqreeching noise on Tick over when hot.

    hi when i drive my Corsa for a couple of miles when i stop i always leave the engine tick over for a couple of minutes to allow the fan to come on to cool the engine. but while im stationery sometimes i can hear a loud sqreeching noise which sounds like its a belt or something or maybe coming from the turbo, but after a few minutes it stops.
    Has anybody got this or experienced this problem ?
    can anyone shine light on what it is ?

        My first suggestion would be to have the aircon checked, its common for the pipes to split, which in turn may lead to the aircon pump running "dry".

          I think that's a common noise he's talking about!

          The noise seems like it's coming from the back of the engine! right?

          All my buddies Corsa OPC's are doing the same thing!

            if its loud it probably won't be anything normal but it could be something simple like a pump. it isn't the fan is it sometimes the interior fan squeals due to snide bearings (probably the same ones they used for the rear of the car lol)

            the corsa generaly has a noisy little engine imo
