Hey mate, yeah your righta actually, especially when I switch it off.. There is a an air sound coming from the engine bay.. Like its sucking, it doesnt last long but its there.. Any ideas how to fix that?

I took it for a longer run yesterday, and after about 8kms when the engine started warming up, it started making this clicking sound whenever I put the accelerator on. It become louder and louder, the when I slowed dow to turn it stalled, and took a while to turn back on. This morning, drove to the train station when cold (3km), NO ISSUES! Its only when its warm.....

Also, this is going to sound ridiculous, but do I put the coolant in the overflow on the left of the engine? the clear box with the buble looking things over it?

I know this all sounds ridiculous, but I really appreciate your help guys, Im not mechanically minded but Im trying!

cheers
