A wooshing noise on acceleration. Mondeo Ghia x diesel auto. High mileage
Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the fuel filters?
Customer: car is 53 reg. I assume transmission is original. Havent checked anything yet.

Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: no dont think so.

Hi there , good morning to you and sorry for the delayed response

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to assist you today

Okthe first thing to inspect and the most common cause of this whooshing concern is a torn/split intercooler hose between the egr valve and intercooler

This large rubber hose is located on the drivers side front of engine bay

If you feel round the back of the hose you will commonly feel a split rear about an inch long

The whooshing noise is compressed air from the turbo leaking out the hose this also can cause black smoke in hard acceleration

If you need further help or technical assistance on this issue going forward

please let me know and I will do my upmost to assist you
