Hi All,<br><br>I finally got a chance to tow a trailer last week, and noticed that when pulling or decending hills (engine braking) it would make a steady "farting / grinding" sound. Kind of like air blowing out of a large balloon - inside of a metal can. Is that the normal? I don't think it was the clutch or tranny - but it was hard to tell. I am a little hesitant to tow anything else in case this is abnormal. I did some searches and all I could come up with was the Turbo Wastegate - whatever that is. <br><br>NO - I don't have an engine brake - not one on the vehicle spec sheet anyway.<br><br>No neutral rattle - in mine at 3000+ km<br><br>Many thanks in advance.
