Diesel engine exhaust noise
My 2.2 has done 15,000 miles and I getting a little concerned about the exhaust. This has come to light as I've been driving round with passenger windows open but I also hear it when they are closed.
In the over-run when changing from 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd, the exhaust has got increasingly noisy. Sounds like a true diesel engine such as in a white van. All other times the exhaust is as quiet as ever.
Got Honda Littlehampton to check it out who pressure-tested the exhaust and say all is okay. But could it be the baffles going or maybe something going in the cats I wonder?
