  • Help please

    Hi all, I have recently bought a Corsa VXR and its suddenly started with a strange noise. From the inside it sounds like sucking air but under the bonnet it sounds like a shot bearing. I think it could be the alternator but a couple who seen the video (that unfortunately won't upload) they say cylinder 4 however there is no misfire and still drives perfectly. Slightly confused as I have had many fast cars but haven't had a VXR before. I'm currently having a mid life crisis I think hence the VXR and my grandson now calls me cool nan. It has had re-map, quick shift box inc gear box rebuild, upgraded injectors, exhaust etc and in general drives and sounds nice other than this new noise. Anyone got any ideas please? I wished I could upload the video but it keeps coming up with error. This is where I think the noise is coming from. Appreciate any reply that may help.

    Maybe take the belt off the alternator etc and run it for a few seconds see if the noise goes away failing that take it to a garage and ask them to have a look
