thank's again for all the replies guy's. Yes Noel the car has aircon, but is the condenser not in the engine bay. Although i can't pinpoint the noise, it sounds as though i'ts coming from the middle of the car. The best match for the noise i can think of is, when you get a burst of air from a compressor. I don't think it sounds like a fluid hitting something hot! If it was something adrift in the exhaust would there not be a rattle to accompany it?
Hi lagdti, does the fuel pump not come on when you turn on the ignition. It does'nt make the noise until you fire it up. And no i cant hear it inside the car. Thats probably why i did'nt hear it on the test drive. It does'nt seem to be affecting performance or anything, but i just thought i'd see if anyone has experienced the same. It's going in to get the headlight washers fixed so i'll get them to check it while it's in.
Thank's again
