    Hi all, ive just bought my 3rd impreza turbo (2000 on a w plate) it has the
    air recirculating valve sitting on right side of intercooler which i think
    is from 99-01 plates.
    from inside the car when running at idle(radio off)i can hear there is
    like an air drawing sound from behind dash/engine and was just wondering
    if this is the normal sound due to air recirculator being where it is. car
    runs great and air noise isnt loud. all hoses from i/cooler appear to be
    good. thanks in advance!!

  2. Double check the intake air 'box'. It can be tricky to get clipped in
    correctly.

    Have you listened around under the hood with the engine idling? Could be
    a leaking vacuum line I suppose.

    thanks for advice carl but yeah engine has no sound atall of air drawing or
    leaking from under the hood not even from above airbox,im thinking its only
    from inside car you hear it due to airrecirculating valve being open when
    engine up to temp? thanks again all for any advice!
