    Hi all! My first post. I bought a 2003 passat glx 2.8l with 190k about a year ago. Problem: Engine start ticking (like loud lifters) recently on passenger side towards rear of engine, seemed like last two cylinders but then more towards back. I stoped driving it just about immediately. After...

    2000 vw passsat 5 sp 1.8T. Just got timing belt done at 165 miles and I'm now at 166. Sometimes if I've been driving for a while and I'm idling I hear this consistent click that sounds like it's coming from the front lower part of the engine. It doesn't sound like anything bad but I'm worried...

    About a month ago I bought a 1999 Passat and it had 2 problems, the secondary air pump running continuously (which I will save for another thread), and my power locks. At first I believed the problem with the locks to be within the driver side door. There was a trick to getting it to lock. I...

    Has anyone ever come across this before? The car ticks, 24/7, like a bomb's about to go off. It's coming from the engine compartment, I think, in the bit in front of the (UK) Driver's steering wheel. Very odd. Think it's electrical -- but don't have any idea what it is, and Google fails to...

    Hi PW, I am having an issue with my 2004 v6 passat (120K miles). There is a ticking noise when I idle only, but when i give it gas it goes away. When the RMP drops to around 900 or less, it starts to make the ticking sound. This started to occur after I got my alternator changed. I will try to...

    So my car's running pretty great, a few minor fixups I'd like to eventually get into, but for now awesome. However... recently a little issue has developed with the turn signal, or something related. You're obviously aware of the normal ticking sound inside the car when the turn signal is on...

    Hey all, I have a 2001 (New) Passat 1.8t and during the past few weeks, the car starts fine and runs fine when cold. However, after about 20 minutes of driving, the car emits a LOUD ticking noise when below 1000rpm (read: idle). Whenever any throttle is applied, ticking immediately goes away. I...

    Hi, Is it normal for the part on top of the air intake to make a ticking sound ? It is marked as A on this picture It is not too loud but noticeable when outside the car. Steady quick tick-tick-tick regardless of the rpms. As of something opens and closes very fast Thanks, Viktor

    Hi. I have a 2007 1.9tdi passat. I can hear a muffled knocking sound from the air intake pipes and air box. It's as if the air is not getting through. Also if I rev the engine over 1500 rpm a loud ticking sound come from around the throttle/egr. The car seems to be starved or air and judders...

    Hi, I have a UK spec. Passat 2007 - DSG Automatic. When the engine starts from cold I hear a ticking noise from under the bonnet. It kinda sounds like Morse code and once the engine is warm, its either gone or undetectable. When I had my car in the mechanic for something else, they told me that...

    My 1.9 has started making that nasty tapping sound, just like petrol engines make when the clearences/cam goes. Will it be the same thing on the TDi 1.9 engine or is there other things that can wear and make for a ropey sounding engine? Cant stand an engine that ticks, it was lovly n smooth...
