2005 2.0 strange start up noise and revs


Recommended Posts

Hi all, this has been enjoying me for a while and getting worse now its cold,

so when I start up from cold the engine seems to start as normal but the revs are low and  seems to struggle a bit, then a low pitch squeal starts and increases, gets louder and louder then stops after what feels like a minute ( could be less)

once the squeal goes the revs pick up ( like something has freed up)  and the engine sounds completely normal, but when I turn  the steering a low short squeal pops up again but not for long, after about 3-4 minutes its all good,

I've taken of the ac belt, no difference, will try the PSP belt on Saturday, cambelt was done last year,  Any ideas ??


thanks for time,
