I have on two occasions now whilst driving experienced a loud whirring / rumbling / gushing type noise in my head, which I first thought was my car? But the second time it happened I stopped and went into a shop. The noise was louder. After about 5 minutes it stopped! What could this be please?
Thank you

was it in both sides?
