    The k&n makes a whoosh noise as it sucks the air in and the rocker gasket cover won't make a noise will just leak oil.

    yeah theres fumes coming through the heater, but I get a headache and the mechanic has looked couldn't find any leaks, but that noise happens when you put your foot down or under pressure and it seams like its losing a bit power, could it be the manifold gasket?

    I think the more worrying thing here is the playing with your phone at 59/60mph on a dark slightly damp road with your kids in the back

    thanks for your concern, although it was a camera and my partner was in the seat holding it anyway, still no answer to my question...

    I gave you your answer the smell n smoke coming in the heaters is burning oil from your gasket(needs replacing)don't think there'll be any other fault deriving from that unless it's pissin out and looses oil n drips on to belts and pulleys

    Kinda hard to hear with the road/wind noise. Is it like a vibration noise?

    Driven by experience and pleasure

    yes dez Derek, thanks for an appropriate response, yeah the video isn't the best but it does vibrate the louder it gets

    also other responses, thanks but I know what the rocker gasket does and I know it's leaking and possibly dropping oil on the exhaust, but obviously I don't think that's the only problem hence the video.
