Thanks for confirming the idle readings, that definitely helps :) With the sensor disconnected I was getting around 4500mbar???
I'll have a look at the said pin hole but for the minor cost I'll just replace it to eliminate. What kind of issues were you having with your car?
Need some advice - what should the normal values be for the back pressure sensor? I have a S320 cdi w221 model with 137k miles on it.
Mines are 970mbar when off
Around 2400mbar when idle
About 1200-1500mbar when reving around 3k.
Do these figures look normal?
Symptoms of car - it's...
Glad to hear it and thanks for the insightful advice regarding fitting. Will pass onto my mechanic once I get the pump next week.

I managed to get this sorted ;)
There appeared to be a loose (intake? not sure what it's called) pipe near the turbo.
Once I pushed this firmly in, the noise disappeared as far as I can tell so far.
Now to get the codes read and sort the electrical gremlins in the car....
Sorry yes I meant as I'm accelerating from standstill or when overtaking. My initial thoughts were turbo (God forbid!) but as the performance of the car is fine with no lag or anything I'm assuming the turbo is fine? Having said that I do see the odd white smoke from the exhaust which may or may...
I've recently noticed a loud whooshing sound coming from the left hand side of the engine bay when accelerating around 3000 revs. The car pulls fine and no issues with performance but the sound is rather concerning. I looked around the forums and seen the intercooler pipe as being a...
I managed to get the battery tested by a local Kwik-Fit who confirmed the starter battery is faulty. It's not holding a charge and on it's last legs. Looking for a replacement now so will report back once changed to confirm it all sorted. Thanks for all your help :)
