  1. VW Engine and Gearbox
    Hi, New to the forums and hoping for some advise. I have a 2012 golf mk6 automatic that makes a low frequency whistling noise in low rev. This usually happens after the car warms up and is driven around for a bit. Here's a link to a video to illustrate exactly what the sound is. Has anyone...

  3. Passat 8 (type 3G) 05/2015>
    Hi all. My car has been making a whirring/purring noise and did it consistently throughout a 200 mile journey over the weekend...does it when it's idle and also prominently when the revs are between 1800 and 2000 especially in 6th gear when your cruising at about 70). Anyone have any ideas as...
  4. Golf 4 (type 1J) 1997 - 2003
    Few Problems with Mk4 Golf; cold ticking, high idle revs & amber oil light on start Ok so long story short i bought the car thinking the timing belt had been recently done, it wasn't and i'm an idiot for believing them. New engine in and the timing belt done on that one. Everything was good...
  5. VW Engine and Gearbox
    Hi. I get a strange noise coming from my engine once it's warmed up after about 20 mins. I've had a ribbed belt changed and my mechanic doesn't want to change the cam belt incase it doesn't solve the noise in getting. It's a hard one to describe but it sort of sounds like a feint bell ringing...

    Since yesterday (31/12/14) I can't seem to start my car, it first happens when I tried to turn on the engine to go to work in the morning, I turned the key and the engine was just "chugging" and wouldn't start properly. After a few attempts the oil symbol flashed up, so I went and purchased some...
  7. Passat 5 - (type 3B) 1996 - 2005
    Hi My petrol 2 litre 2002 Passat has a nasty rasp/rattle as you accelerate but goes when you back off, much worse at cold but still can be heard when hot. Its seems to do it when under load rather than if you just rev it up, or at least I can't hear it. Sounds really bad. Any ideas? :confused:
  8. Jetta 4 and Bora (type 1J) 1999 - 2006
    Hi, I'm relatively new to this whole forum idea, and with a complete lack of mechanical knowledge and a small budget trying to run a V6, I would like some advice from people that know what they're talking about. I bought a Bora V6 back in January, and since I got it there's been a few odd noises...
  9. Passat 5 - (type 3B) 1996 - 2005
    Hi, I bought a 05 plate 1.9tdi (100) passat last week, it's currently showing 58,000 miles, last serviced at 52k.. Full service history, very well maintained... My question is this... When idling or at low revs the engine is very "tractor-like" and the steering column vibrates and you...
