Hello all,

My friends keep telling me how loud my car is when I have the air conditioner on in the summer , they say my engine sounds like a jet :roll:

Why is this so loud on my car as I really do not hear it as loud on other cars( is it a VW thing again ?)
Thx,

John

I experience the same thing (’99 1.8T AEB w/62,500 miles).

As long as you do not hear a grinding/pebble noise, a symptom of the fan bearings going bad, you should be fine.

You have two fans, one connected to the engine by a belt, this one always runs. But when you use your airconditioning the second fan sometimes turns on, this fan is electric.

Totally normal, tell you friends to get better cars :p
