    Have i got a problem or is it just me!???

    im not sure if im just hearing things or if something has gone wrong with my car!
    i have a 2.0tdi sport (first diesel car so havent got a clue). when i drive along with window down i can hear hissing noise when accelerating and eases off when changing gear, but before it seemed to be the other way around (sort of like a dump valve!)
    Can anyone help please?

    Mine does exactly the same mate, I shouldnt worry too much about it.
    After owning an S4 I listen all the time to what my car's doing, as in that I was dreading the turbo fairy coming a knocking!
    8P S3 S-Tronic BE. Stage 2 from Awesome GTi.

    Gone - S4 bi-turbo - forever a place in my heart!

    Dont worry about it. This hiss on a TDI is loud! Its just the turbo doing its thing.

    It is loud with windows down...

    If you want to make it even louder and gain a couple of extra ponies, then have a search for "mufflerectomy".
