Hi I was wondering if you could help me to find out what is wrong with my car - vauxhall astra 1.3 cdti club '07 plate.
Over the past 2 weeks there has been a constant humming "hoover-like" noise which seems to be coming from the rear passenger side. It happens as soon as the key is turned before starting, both when stationary and in motion.
It is getting progressively worse. It was running fine until I got a friend to change a dirty fuel filter for me yesterday morning. Now on my way to and from work this morning, it cut out on me about 8 times whilst only doing 16 miles!
Do you think it is still safe for me to drive? It is just that the nearest Vauxhall garage is 40 miles away, and it will cost a lot to get them to come out to see the vehicle.
