    I've noticed recently that my Passat has a "hissing" noise when I accelerate. I've had the car about a year now, and this only started recently. Listen here: https://soundcloud.com/arthurlockman/car-noise You can hear in the clip that whenever I accelerate, there's a hissing sound overlaid on...

    I've searched around, but not found a conclusive post. After the car has been turned off, should the overflow reservoir make a hissing noise? Or should it hold a vacuum/air tight? I'm trying to track down minor coolant leakage (takes about 3 weeks for the low warning to chime).

    Okay I finally received the new head unit which I bought on Aliexpress and have been waiting for to replace an earlier one known as an S60, which I bought a couple or few years back. Without wasting time on the past, I didn't original understand it this way before but I have since heard the...

    The speaker and tweeter on my front passenger door have this constant random hissing sound almost as if a radio station isn't coming in, HOWEVER it happens all the time with CDs, radio, and my ipod hookup. I've check the connection at the back of the headunit and its fine. I've also tried...

    Hi guys, So for the past year or so, my focus has been on fixing my car's rough idling problems, which it's had since I bought it. Today, I finally got around to tracking down what I thought was a vacuum leak. After a few hours of fiddling, I found out it was the fuel supply line (the one...

    Air Conditioning issues, vents 'hiss' when the A/C is on So we just bought an 04 B5.5V TDI and when we were test driving the car, I didn't actually notice this issue since we didn't do extensive driving and I wasn't listening for this problem specifically. So basically what I found after the...

    1.8 ATW 2000 Stuck on I-95 this weekend - lots of stop and go - I noticed a prounced brake hiss everytime I let off the brake pedal. Like air pressure or something being released. It was so loud my wife asked me if there was a problem. It felt normal braking - no trouble there. Could this...

    So, my question is where do I check for it? I have little or no boost. Sometimes it registers at like 4 psi and others I get up to abot 10. When I get 10, I have a super loud hiss coming from the passenger side of the engine bay. I took the damn airbox out and looked all around and found no...

    Okay, I have a 2002 Variant with an APR 93 octane chip and the tip slush box. Lately, with the chip on and the trans in "fake sport mode" it feels like it's not getting the power it once was. It used to shift down a lot quicker and then make boost a lot quicker and then shoot forward with a...

    I have installed an aftermarket head unit (JVC KD-LH3100) into my 2001.5 Passat w/ monsoon. I am getting a very soft hiss audible only when it is extremely quiet in the car and the audio playing is at a low volume (for example, you would not hear it at normal listening levels or notice it while...

    I recently bought a 2003 glx 4motion sedan. I have noticed several unpleasant features of the stereo. First, there is a low level hiss which comes out of all four speakers whenever the stereo is turned on. It is audible at very low volume levels. It occurs in all stereo modes (AM, FM, CD)...
