  3. VW Engine and Gearbox
    My 2012 Golf 1.6 TDI started to smoke heavily whilst under load at about 65 uphill on the motorway with a loud pinking / knocking sound. The smoke seems to be fuel not oil. Its not a continuous noise and it's mainly under load but also decelerating at low speed. I took it in for a diagnostic...

Turn the key 4. There is a clicking coming from the steering column, all the lights are flashing on the...
  5. Golf 5 (type 1K) 2003 - 2009
    Hi guys, I've some trouble with my Golf 5 2005 1.9 TDI 105ps. When starting the car, it's starting fine but it seems like the engine is rotated pretty hard. You can even notice a strong rattle (rough start) in the inside of the car. It feels like the engine is going to jump out of the bay. The...
  6. Golf 5 (type 1K) 2003 - 2009
    So Saturday night I was driving home, when I gave the car a bit of acceleration boom, the car hit max revs almost like I had missed a gear and black smoke came out the back everywhere I have heard of runaway engines but the car turned off with no problem, in the engine bay there was what seemed...

    First off, hi all on the forum. Decided I had to take the plunge and register here to get some advice as my Mrs is now driving my car these days and she's giving me hell because it's started cutting out on her. Got a scirocco 2.0tdi 170 with dsg and a fresh 1 day old stage 1 shark remap ...
  8. General Chat
    Hi everyone, My name is Dan. I got myself a brand new VW Passat Alltrack in March this year. Everything was fine with it up until recently. I got a product recall on the car so I took it over to VW Arnold Clark and it turns out they did a software update, which took them over 2 and half hours...

  10. Jetta 5 - (type 1K) 2005–2011
    Hi guys wondering if someone could help. I have had a weird clicking/buzzing noise coming from behind the drivers dash. It seems to be louder outside of the car and it makes this noise even when the car is off and locked. I have tried turning everything on and off and nothing has helped. Checked...
  11. Crafter 1 - (type 2E) 2006 - 2017
    2011 Crafter Long and High starts and then cuts out immediately when engine is warm. From cold it starts and drives with no issue what so ever. Booked into VW to be told they cannot find anything wrong at all. Replaced crank case sensor, no difference. When it's running it is absolutely perfect...
  12. Polo 3 - (type 6N1 & 6N2) 1994 - 2003
    Hi guys, I'm new here but I can't wait to dig into a VW forum! I'm living abroad but seen as I prefer to just speak English when it comes to cars (that's kind of a lie.. pretty much when it comes to anything) I thought I'd log on to the UK forum. Anyway to get to the point.. I have a 1.4...
  13. Passat 6 - (type 3C) 2005 - 2011
    Hi. My (remote) car key can no longer unlock the car, only lock it. I tried the synchronising instructions from the manual (press open button on car key, open door manually with spare key, put car key in ignition), but they did not fix the problem. Is there anything else I could try? Surely it...
  14. Golf 4 (type 1J) 1997 - 2003
    Hello All, I recently bought a MK4 Golf and I love it. My only problem is that I can't operate the electric windows, which, at this time of year are very useful, especially with my 1 month old in the back. I have found that the 20A fuse for the 14 slot in the fuse box was blown, replacing this...
  15. Golf 4 (type 1J) 1997 - 2003
    Greetings All, i'm throwing myself at your feet........ ...about 4 weeks ago my Traction Control System (TCS) M.I.L. (Malfunction Indicator Light) started flashing and stayed on (the one with a circlular arrow around a triangle with an exclamation mark in the middle) at the same time as awful...
  16. VW Engine and Gearbox
    Hi there I've had a recurring problem with my 2003 Bora where it's juddered and struggled to gain speed when trying to accelerate, often stalling as a result. The problem only occurs after starting the engine. The problem has returned and become permanent now, and has gone on for the last few...
  17. Jetta 4 and Bora (type 1J) 1999 - 2006
    Just thought I would ask before i go ahead and try and change my backbox. My car sounds like it has a sports exhaust although it hasnt and i dont know if the backbox has been changed before and its just a cheap one. But i have had it looked at and there is no visible sign of wear or holes. So it...
  18. Golf 5 (type 1K) 2003 - 2009
    Hi, I recently purchased my golf mk5 1.6 fsi, and have only just had the need to start using the ipod dock. I have done some research, and i understand that there are adapters than can be placed in order for the iphone/ ipod to fit safely. I have, however, not got these adapters so have been...
  19. Jetta 4 and Bora (type 1J) 1999 - 2006
    Since i bought my bora a few months ago there has been a strong vibration coming through from the mid section of the car (footwell area) i am positive its part of the exhaust system (standard) As it only does it when going between 2500 - 3200rpm.
  20. Golf 5 (type 1K) 2003 - 2009
    Hi, recently bought an 04 Mk5 - details in signature. It had 110k miles on it when I bought it, with a partial VWSH. It is actually my first car as I managed to put off driving until now (I'm not telling you my age but suffice to say it begins with 3...) In the last few days I've noticed that...
