Do you have an Alcatara interior? Maybe it doesn't want to be in there anymore?

These are some cat-astrophically bad puns, a-paw-ling in fact.

And yes it is still doing it!

Didn't Lotus do a prototype Esprit called SID?

 

Does the stereo keep playing this?:

 

 

Try the Dolby button.

How about some fixing?  Try and locate the vaccum line that comes from the right side of the dash. Disconnect it and plug it, try it again. If it is still hissing, it's probably not the vaccum, if it is then you need to spend some time on your back and check every tube and actuators under the dash... The tubes are very easy to pull off from elbows and Ts, I have mounted them with a dab of silicone on the outside once fitted.

Hi Hopo,

I have exactly the same problem on my 87 turbo.

I thought it was coming from the waste gate or some vacuum leak in the engine compartment

but it does seem to come from the Inside of the car, when I change gears up.

Have you found a solution ?

Alas, I didn't find a solution.... But it stopped of its own accord. Very bizarre and as you can see this thread was extremely helpful! 

Best of luck!
