    The transmission, that is. My son's 03 V6 Wagon GLX has been doing pretty good. Replaced the axleshafts and he's been driving it back and forth to school and to work. The transmission has been whining since we got it. As far as I (and he) can tell, it only whines when moving at over 25MPH. No...

    Hello. The rear main crankshaft seal was replaced past Friday on 2010 Passat with DSG transmission. I haven't had a chance to drive the car until today (wife's car) and noticed a few things. 1. When car is in park and I push the gas pedal (quickly for a fraction of a second), the rpms go up to...

    Since last month, every morning I start up the car and begin to drive :driving: I hear a few whining sounds coming from the passenger side (or could also be the driver side) when I turn the wheels (no matter left or right). But immediately, after the engine warms up the sounds go away. I never...

    My 99 1.8T A/T (186,500 mile) is whining and sound exactly like a power steering pump, but it isn't. Turning wheels makes no difference. Sounds the same even in park. Changes directly in relation to RPM. Serpentine belt is not new, but seem tight. Could it possible be the torque converter...

    Hey guys, so I've got a 2004 1.8t 4motion 5speed passat. Recently (within the last 300 miles) I put a stage 2 tune in it from Eurocustoms. Initially I had an underboost code which I traced down to a loose boost hose. And while I was diagnosing the boost leak I found that the SAI pump pipe going...

    Everytime on startup, there's a constant whining from my Passat. Coming from the right side. Tends to go away after running for a while. If I turn it off for more than a half hour, and turn it back on its usually there. Any ideas? I'm hoping it's not another major problem with this damn thing...

    I got a second-hand 2008 Passat 2.0T last year. and now it got 78800 miles on it. Few months ago I start to notice there are strange whining noise coming from the front driver side when the velocity reaches between 70~75 mph. and little shake coming from the driver's floor. I noticed that...

    My 2000 Passat has for a long time had a slight whining sound coming from the engine just in front of the driver. It's not very loud -- often the passenger can't even hear it. It doesn't seem to be linked to steering -- this is not that screeching sound that sometimes happens when you turn the...

    2004 Passat 1.8t 146k miles began making a whine sound after backing up for 40 feet. The sound is now constant in park or neutral louder when rpm increases. Increases under acceleration. I changed the trans fluid, no change. No problems shifting, no shake or vibration. Any ideas.

    My Passat has developed a whining noise similar to a power steering pump noise but I checked that out and it is operating normally. It sounds like it is louder to the rear of the engine but is not making the normal ratcheting noise like the cam chain tensioner would make. Please check out this...

    I have been pretty unhappy overall about the lack of response while in Manual Moderusing tiptronic. Especially when downshifting, lets say from 6th gear to 4th, it seems to take forever, before the gear engages. Is there something wrong with gearbox or the transmission? In addition the...

    I have the whining noise from the engine that gets higher as you rev the engine, whether in idle or driving. I replaced the serpentine belt and the tensioner thinking that was the problem...but didn't help. Noise still there. No codes being thrown, no engine light. Not sure where to look now.

    1998 1.8t fwd Passat automatic/tip. Left for work today and my car start making a whining noise when I was in any gear. Sounds like power steering but fluids topped off. Doesn't matter if I'm turning or going in a straight line, still get the noise and won't stop unless I'm stopped. Any...

    Problem is that when speed exceeds 40kmph I hear whining noise front of the car. Not from tire nor Turbo. Noise frequency depends how fast I drive. Can it be viscous fan bearing? Any ideas?

    I have a 2001 B5 2.8L V6 sedan with 99000 miles on it and recently it has started making a high pitched electric whining sound, similar to an electric engine noise. I have recently replaced the timing belt, water pump, valve gaskets, and hydraulic motor mounts. All done at a german only import...

    Firstly i have a 2001 1.8T passat I was driving along today when my car jerked and started a whining noise. The transmission (my car is tiptronic) will not change gear when the gearstick is on the auto half and the only way to drive is using tiptronic. Now when i turn it on it has a loud...
