Kettle Whistle

I know this has been posted before but I read 2 different things when I do a search? Is this noise from an egr cooler failing or headgaskets? What are signs to look for? I am not blowing any smoke yet. The coolant level in the degas bottle is a little under the line but not much. Also I cant really go to the dealer cause no warranty left. Is it still $100 for them to look at it if is out of warranty? I need to ask them if they will cover it cause I am only 950 miles over warranty but they will probably say NO anyways.

Kettle whistle is usually EGR cooler. Take it in talk to the service manager. Since you are so close they might work something out

eh I would just rather delete the egr rather than getting a new one but I am wondering if it is the hg's?

Do you think they would look at it for the 100 dollars? or does it cost more when you are out of warranty?

When you are out of warranty it's whatever the time and material is for the labor to check it out.

When I had the kettle whistle, my hg's were toasted and there was nothing wrong with the egr cooler...but I would go ahead and get rid of the cooler anyway if I was you

x2, i had the kettle whistle and it had nothing to do with the EGR cooler. both HG's were completely shot, and boost pressure was leaking into the coolant system. the air blowing out of the degas bottle was where the "whistle" came from.

Wouldnt the sound get louder under more boost though if it was headgaskets? It only does it when I am at a steady speed?

If it is headgaskets looks like I am doin it myself I will borrow an engine lift since I dont have access to a lift. Everyone quote around here to to do them want like 4K or more!

mine never got louder, just whistled. i would do a pressure test. see if you're bleeding pressure into the coolant system. that will tell you if its HG's or not. Do you have access to an air compressor?

if you do the HG's, make sure you use ARP studs. if you use OEM bolts again you're just going to have to do this whole process over again...

kettle whistle is usually more a head gasket issue than egr cooler , compression pressures getting into the cooling system, it can be egr cooler , but by that time , you should see a slight coolant loss
