159 jtdm p0340 and weird sound
Hi! Would anyone know what's wrong with my Alfa? I hear this very loud whistle like sound inside the car. Managed to record it even with my crap Nokia phone! Put it on Youtube.
Alfa 159 sound - YouTube
The sound appears when I drive on fourth gear around 40 miles per hour (2000 rpm). The sound gets louder when I don't press the acceleration pedal and the car slows down. The local garage checked the error codes and the car gave error P0340 Phase Sensor intermittent. They ordered a new sensor of some sort but are not sure what causes the odd whistle like sound.
There is also slight hesitation at around 1800 rpm when accelerating. Especially when the car is cold.
