- VP Exec 5L BT1 ex cop, ex taxi
Trying to make the 5L VP all quiet and shooshy inside like a limo. At around the 1500 rpm mark there is a drony, moany kind of sound (pretty sure not exhaust) that might actually be coming from the p/s pump though when you listen to it with the bonnet up it is not really that noisy. You can hear it in the car like it is coming through the metalwork. It is not loud or anything, just you can hear it. What I am wondering is, seeing the rubber engine mounts are nearly 20 years old, can they gradually go hard and inflexible and so transmit more vibrations and noise to the car structure?
