OK, I need some help here. When I turn on the car and put it in to drive, it starts making a knocking noise. But the noise goes away once i go about 15MPH, and dosent return until the next time i start the car. What is this noise?

Bad gas maybe? After 15 mph your engine must have reduced the timing to anti knock. Could be a lot of things though... find someone with a Vag Com and have them scan it. Or go to Autozone and have them pull the codes then post them on here.

I dont think it is bad gas. I have been using 92 octane since I got the car in December. It has been making the noise for only a week of so.

It cant be the weather. It was colder last month than in Feb. and there was no noise then.
