    Hearing a "fluttering" sound on the passenger side front when idling. Any ideas? Thanks.

    I just replaced my seized ko3 with a ko4 as a first step to what I'm sure will be a long line of modifications to my 01'. First thing I noticed was the intermittent boosting I was experiencing. If I eased into the throttle it will be fine until I hit about 2500-3000 rpms then it start bucking...

    Running a t3/t4 BT setup. I had a BOV, but i decided to change it to a DV. So i had a screw in extension to my BOV that makes it into a DV. i routed the hose to the air intake AFTER the maf sensor, BEFORE the turbo. And now when i shift, i get the reverse turbine flutter. And im pulling my hair...

    Hello everyone, I am new to the forum and have been searching and reading through here for hours now about these cars. I recently bought a 2004 Passat (B5.5) and I really love how quite and smooth it is. I have one question for you guys that hopefully someone can answer: When accelerating...

    What would cause a forge 007 to flutter instead of pssshhhing

    Installed a cone air filter and everything is fine, but after I accelerate there is a fluttering sound. Like air coming out of somewhere from a flap. Is this normal? The turbo sounds great with the extra air, but this sound after backing off on the gas doesn't sound right.

    soo what does Fluttering mean? i dont think i have a leak, as i have done a pressure test in the past. Could the DV be bad? Ive serviced before in the past & everything seemed to look pretty good. TIA

    My RPM at idle flutters just slightly when i come to a stop especially after pulling into traffic from a stop, i sat still adn revved it a few times and the same problem wasnt there, so its only while moving. i have no CEL's and the drives perfect. should i worry about it?

    Hey guys. This may be nothing but i figure i would post it here. About a week ago I noticed that instead of just going "psh" when i let off the gas it would flutter. It's almost like i'm in a tunnel and the blow off sound is just echoing. A few people have said that it might be compressor...

    I have a Horrible Fluttering Misfire that seems to be temperature-dependent. I have replaced the ICM, symptoms haven't changed much, maybe a little better. 1] Below 75F ambient, car runs fine w/o a hint of misfire. 2] Starting at 80F, I get hints of misfire. 3] At 100F ambient, the thing...

    I'm curious about those with problems of their bi-xenons or even regular halogens fluttering. Mainly folks with the B5.5 headlamps but anyone with insight would be welcome to answer. I am curious if the E-code bixenons are prone to showing fluttering. I have heard of some having this problem...
