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?:think:

There ain't no party like an S-Club Party.
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!

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".
