- My model of MX-5 is: 2007 MK3 1.8l
- I’m based near: Cheshire
- I’m looking for technical help or recommendations on: Noisey Acceleration
I have been working on my car since purchase and had it serviced and they found no major issues, just a bit of rust which needs sorting before the next MOT.
My issue is that when the car is stationary and I press the accelerator the car sounds great. But when driving and I floor it at 4000rpm I get a tin like sound which appears to be coming from the rear of the car. When the windows and/or roof are down I do not hear it. I think the noise could be coming up the drain holes perhaps so I can hear it more when roof and windows are up.
I am wondering if it is the exhaust system, I am looking to get a Cobalt or Cobra or custom one fitted shortly so if it is I am not fussed. It happens at above the 4000 and continues until the revs drop below that threshold.
I have a video of the noise but no idea how to put it in the post. Happy to text or whatsapp to anyone who think they may be able to help.
Any one have any suggestions please?
