    Spluttering Noise?

    Hi guys,
    Ive oticed that when I get in my car in thew morning and pull off there is a strange spluttering noise which sound like it might have something to do with the turbo but after the car warms up it goes away?? Is this normal or is it a problem thats in its early stages?
    Any ideas?
    Thanks
    Rob

    Hmmmmm, hard to say mate without a little more specific info. First thing is to check for obvious leaks in your turbo hoses and vac hoses...

    It could be the DV sticking.

    Good shout - it could also be the diaphragm split if using stock item?

    Mine hesitates for a couple of seconds when its started from cold. Its not a splutter though...just almost a bit of a mis-fire before its reved a couple of times. Only seems to do it in cold weather though.

    Stick the standard one back on and see if it stops.
