I can only hear it when the door is open or if i'm outside the car not when i'm in the car.

Has anyone had this happen?

Thanks.

The may just be the exhaust flap opening up. I'm pretty sure it defaults to the open position, and is pulled closed by vacuum. You're probably just hearing it close after the vacuum is lost. Just a guess though. These cars make a lot of funny noises, both when they're running and right after you've stopped.
