Not been on here much as sorted a few issues out with the help of the members when I first had issues with my Ford Galaxy MKII 1.9 TDi 2005 and everything has been going fine until this evening.

I have noticed that when accelerating to change gear there is a noise that can only be described as if a vacuum cleaner has been turned on, the sound only occurs when moving and when stationary there is no noise at all

This did not happen when the Galaxy was used a little earlier and has all of a sudden started to happen, like I say it is accelerating to change gear as once in top gear or in a gear where you are doing a level speed there is no noise.


Like I say cars and mechanics are not my strong point as if it was an IT issue it would have been sorted by now.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It’ll be boost pipe with a split in it by the sounds of it, it’ll prob be a bit down on power as well I’d imagine. Should be like a loud hiss that shuts up when you come off the gas
