Hi all.
My other halves 94 216 auto with the honda engine makes a odd chuffing noise when running .
It runs and drives just fine, it's got me foxed.
I'm about to do a belt change .

Could it be from the induction system.

Yes, or a failed inlet gasket

More likely a failed exhaust manifold gasket or similar. If it’s inlet side it would most likely idle high/fuel badly.

is it a regular noise or just on acceleration? I had a cracked exhaust manifold which made a similar chuffing noise but it was at higher revs and working hard or just blipped accelerator at tick over to hear it. Hairline crack only down the centre of the join between the two pipes but it made a blow noise that was very hard to pin point.
