Hi, I have a 2011 Galaxy 2.0tdci. I've  noticed a whistling noise when accelerating from the engine bay. Followed by an engine check light.

If I drive slowly the whistling does not appear nor the check engine light.

Could this be a split pipe? If so, any ideas on which to check and where they are located?

Sounds like a split intercooler hose. Check the big hose coming out of the intercooler.


I'm not massively familiar with the 2.0 diesel but have a look here for an idea of the hoses http://www.catcar.in...TE1NzM3MzYrMTMz

I got whistling  sound to with my Galaxy mk3 (345.000) kms)  the whistling of my car is caused by turbo charger.. 

in my case you can only hear it when the engine is cold between 1000 and 2000 rp/m.

I had a whoshing sound on my 93 400 mile 2.0tdci '07 reg Galaxy 6 speed manual - sounded like a child pretending to be a ghost... whooo... whooOOO... WHOOOOO as you accelerated, along with sluggish performance and going into "limp home mode" which would go away after a restart, but then even a restart didn't cure it and it stayed in "limp home mode." All symptoms were particularly bad in cold winter weather.

Turns out that the turbo had failed and I had to replace it along with the oil feed pipe, oil filter and new engine oil. There is still a very subtle and hushed verson of that noise after a cold start, and particularly in cold weather, but it's almost imperceptible now.
