Discovery 2, TD5 - chirrup!


Recommended Posts

This isn't a joke question!

When I turn off the engine there is a momentary, quite noticeable 'chirrup' sound from the engine compartment!

No trapped bird(s) as far as I can see!

Can anyone throw any light on what it might be, please?

All jokes will remain the property of the originator!

It might be related to the serpentine belt moving on the pulleys as the engine stops. Its alleged by a few people that genuine LR belts are slightly different material & grip the pulleys better - and don't make this noise.

Our td5 does it. I've checked the crankshaft pulley & it's fine, but haven't changed thr belt yet - as it appears to cause no other problems.

Mine did that when I replaced the belt & tensioner..... (A lesser known brand of belt... Can't remember the brands but not blue box....)

Got hold of another and the problem went away. No issues with the crank pulley when I tested it....
