Hi everyone, just introduced myself in the newbie corner so this is my second post.
I've bought myself a mint 155 2.0 16v super with full service history and no rust!
of course there are a few catches, first off the original engine broke it's cambelt (not uncommon i've heard!) so the previous owner, who's an ex mechanic and handy with a spanner, has fitted a 2.0 16v engine from a 147. it runs sweet except when i first start it, the previous owner also fitted an air intake mod-(not sure which one) so when the engine is cold i can hear and see the air filter sucks in air and hisses, which causes irregular tickover
Its fine after 5 minuets when its warm up, the sucking stops and tickover's fine. Im thinking of putting the original filter and casing back on will this cure the problem?
