Hi mate i didnt mean to sound cheeky in my thread it was a typo mistake and i appreciate your advice,i replaced the maf and its still the same,had a nosey online,could it possibly be the coolant sensor
I, 've been looking at your responses to the posts by other members and you seem to know a thing or two!
I have a 2005 mk 5 golf gti tfsi with 44, 000 miles. It has developed a rattle coming from the top end. On starting, it's fine then after a minute a ticking noise appears (cam follower?) which then goes quiet and is replaced a couple of minutes later by a rattle which gets more obtrusive as the engine warms up.. its best described as sounding more like a diesel than a petrol when idling at normal operating temperature. In addition, when the engine is running at idle, albeit noisily, when you pull the dipstick half out or unscrew the oil filler cap, the engine starts 'hunting' or running really lumpy but then returns to normal when you replace the dipstick/cap. Are these two connected and if so, what is the likely cause? If not, what not what are the likely causes? Thanks.
Hi, thanks for the reply to my new thread, I can't seem to find it though, I wanted to reply to your message but the link takes me to a 'no thread specified page'. Just wondered if you know if it has been deleted or not. Thanks.
