Booming

Post by Trafford » Sat May 16, 2020 7:39 pm

Hi all
New to forum
I have a 2015 xe diesel
Over the last few weeks I have noticed a loud booming noise after start up which seems to be coming from the boot or tank
No effect on performance
Anyone know about this
Is it a problem and what exactly is it

Never experienced this personally on the XE but I once filled my Rover to the top of the filler (Petrol tank) and after a few miles got a boom noise. I took the filler cap off and a large gush of air was heard and the noise went. Probably nothing to do with your problem but if your cap/tank breather is blocked it may be that.

Possibly exhaust or engine mount issue? Or a detached resonant damper on the rear box?

I started the engine and had a close look at the exhaust.
The sound is definitely exhaust related. Can’t find anything loose or leaking though.

If you think it is exhaust it will possibly be one of two things. The damper on the exhaust that looks like a solid cylinder part way down the middle OR water collecting from condensation in the silencer back box. A good blast on an A or M way road should sort that. The former needs a new part.
