interior knocking noise?

#1 Post by 216gtivalver » Mon Jan 09, 2012 8:27 pm

Hey people...

not really sure where to put this but will see what happens, when im driving and accelerate sort of behind the dash, instrumental panel side, is a bottom end sort of sound almost ticking and knocking at the same time, but there is obviously no bottom end sound from engine bay when inspected...

it also whistles quite loudly on a certain throttle posistion, although i did like it i now dont!!!!! :) but it feels almost like a slight loss in power but not really noticable, only when in 3rd gear and flooring it, almost has stages, like 3 stages of power release!!! if that makes sense??

and advice would be good
cheers
joe :D

nah wouldnt of thought so....more like from in the dash, but the ticking/knocking matches engines revolutions... :)

Does it match engine revs or does it match car movement? because if it's there when the car moves and the speed rises then it could be the speedo and or the drive at the back of the speedo.
