    Hi! I just bought a passat -08, that soon hits the 150 000 km mark, so there will be some things done on it, timing belt, checking the particulate filter and so on. But I've noticed a little drumming sound sometimes when I drive at low rpm:s in gear 1, so I uploaded a clip of the sound... see...

    Recently when started in cold weather my power steering is very noisy when turning. Seems to be getting worse. Fluid level has always been good but looks dirty. Is this a symptom of pump failure or could there be other problems? Is there a procedure for changing/flushing the power steering...

    Replaced the alternator in my B5 V6 last week, oh what a fun job that was. All was perfect until yesterday. Let the husband drive the car as I had to go get the tabs for his. Got the dreaded "alternator workshop, beep beep beep, flashing battery light" phone call. Rushed home. Have been...

    2.0 wagon, when driving in stop and go traffic I get an occasional thump when the trans goes up or down from first to second, and vice versa. Can one of you gurus enlighten me, and suggest an inexpensive cure!

    2001.5 1.8T sounds like a diesel when warm & is very noisy upon strat-up. What wrong? I've actually had people ask me if it was a diesel. It has 101k on it. Had the sludge issue at around 70k, which, the VW dealership fixed. Been running synthetic in it since...as well as letting it idle for a...

    Suddenly I'm hearing noise when turning to the right my 2002 Passat. It happens even while sitting still. Tie rod ends? Bad wheel bearing? CV Joint? Thanks!

    My car's always been a little loud since I bought it, and I'm not sure if it's just normal (my dad [previous owner] said he got a shortcut done with the flex pipe, which might make it a little louder), or if it's something to worry about. I had a friend ask me if it was a diesel the first time...

    Its fairly hot today, around 85 degrees, and when I was just taking off for lunch I noticed the Passat had a little noisier ticking sound. I suspect its the injectors, as I know a bearing ticking is different. Is there anything I can do to quiet it down a little? I can hear the ticking from...

    This is a strange one. On my 2000 B5, the power door locks (PDL) make a squawking noise every time they try to lock or unlock, which is very annoying. In looking for clues, I have noticed that the passenger rear and drivers front doors don't lock automatically. For the passenger rear door, I...

    Hi folks, I'm new here, and am a proud new owner of a used 2004 passat gls. I test drove it and was impressed by how quiet and zippy the car was so I bought it. Unfortunately, on literally my first drive in it as the owner, I gave it some gas to merge out into traffic, and the engine died...

    Turn on the A/C (GLX/Climatronic) I've noticed that fan in the engine bay is pretty noisy. It's only noticable when the car is in nuetral or sitting stopped at a light. When I either go into Econo mode, or just accelerate, that loud noise and rumble is gone. What should I specifically be...

    Is the 3.6 normally a noisy motor? Even around 2-3k rpms it seems overly loud to anything ive ever driven before. Not necessarily a bad noise, but just the mechanical noise of the motor. I know its a lot bigger than the 2.8 vr6 but my 04 gti is really quiet.

    There is a whirring and clicking noise coming from somewhere around my centre vents. They are working ok though but this noise is always there. What is causing it and how do I stop it? Thanks

    Hey everyone. I'm at my wits end and need some input. I have what sounds like a bad wheel bearing. It's so loud at freeway speeds it's unbelievable. It sounds exactly like I'm running truck (mud) tires, but I'm not. I have Yokohama S drives 225/45/17. They are about 75% worn. One day the noise...

    I have a 2004 Passat 2.0ltr engine. Regularly serviced. Over the last month or so I have noticed that when I start the car in the morning, it sounds briefly like a diesel engine. Only for about five seconds. I do have a problem with the vacuum pipes (leak). I have received the part today but...

    2002 passat glx v6 A slight but noticeable howl between 50 and 60 mph, accentuated during acceleration. Checked diff fluid, was low. Added about 0.4 qts. Still noisy. Any ideas on how to quiet it down? (additives, thicker oil, etc) Used mobil delvac synth 75w90 Thanks in advance.

    I did the DIY MAF cleaning with alcohol, and ever since, the EVAP purge valve near the air box emits (intermittently) a loud clicking noise, similar to the sound of an air compressor. I did a search and found that this is not uncommon, but is it normal? Does this mean I should be...
