    Hi all, long time lurker of this very good forum. I have enjoyed reading all the posts, the useful, funny and inspiring ones so thanks for that.

    Bought my S3 way back in 07 and i still find the slightest excuse to go drive it.. :yellowrs4: i'm sure majority of you guys/gals? feel the same.

    Anyways,started her up this morning with the usual silly grin in anticipation of driving and noticed an unusual sound... wound down the window and yep there's a sucking noise coming from the engine bay drivers side..like a pump sucking air..best way i can think of describing it!! It stopped after a couple of minutes of driving and didn't seem to be lacking in power!

    So does anyone have an idea what this could be? Anyone experienced similar before i take her in to the dealers!

    Any help would be appreciated..

    It's your fuel pump priming the injectors and is normal on most modern cars.

    Gillian Taylforth..Now you mention it she did (in the range rover..allegedly).

    Thanks CJP80 i thought it might be that,never heard it before though and my previous 2.0 FSI sport had a slightly different sound for the fuel pump priming.

    Cheers fellas.

    Dunno about that, my S3 and mom's tiguan gives a mechanical whirl sound and only for a second or two at most, usually when you open the driver's door, and it'd be done even before you can sit properly. He did mention hearing the sound for a "few minutes"?
