noise

  1. MKV GTI
    Hi all, I have a stock MKV (FSI engine) and I have been hearing a strange noise when I turn the ignition key to the first notch, before I start the engine. It sounds to me like a pump working in vacuum, or a gear slipping. It comes from behind the glove box, and I am not sure what's back there...
  2. MKIV GTI
    Hey guys, I have just started hearing some ticking type noises in my '03 GTI 1.8T when I am coming down from 3rd gear to 2nd to 1st. I also hear it until I get the rpm's up in 1st gear and when I shift into second the noise stops. When I drive down the road I don't hear anything just when I am...
  3. MKV GTI
    The other day I had a pretty loud clanging noise (best way to describe it) coming from the engine bay. I could hear it from inside the car and then even more if I rolled down the window. It seemed like it was mainly when I accelerated. It kinda sounded like metal on metal. Luckily I was pretty...
  4. MKIV GTI
    In the past couple months I've slowly noticed more and more of this noise in the top end that's gradually gotten worse. Now it's to a point that is beginning to concern me. I've also noticed a gradual lose of power in the past few weeks. The noise begins after the vehicle has been running for...
  5. MKV GTI
    What's up guys I've been getting this clanking/loud heavy clicking constantly over bumps especially uneven pavement. If the road I'm on is real ****ty it will clack constantly until on smooth pavement. It's coming from the bottom entire front. All the way from left to right. If I turn back and...
  6. 2.0T FSI / TSI Engines
    So recently, I was involved in a post where everyone was stating what they do to make money. After replying to a fellow member here that I make beats, record, perform, etc... I was asked to send a couple beats. So I decided I'd just throw this up for others to listen too. Feedback would be...

  8. MKV GTI
    I've heard a quiet knocking noise every now and then that hits about 3 or 5 times then it stops, but lately its been happening more frequently, its coming from the drivers side and typically happens when I'm between 1 and 2 rpm. Possible engine issue? Edit: After more searching I've heard...

  10. MKIV GTI
    sounds almost exactly like this... i'm thinking exhaust manifold or turbo flanges. any other ideas?
  11. MKIV GTI
    Its stock exhaust, but common... my 2.0L 1998 Golf had more cabin noise than the mk4 gti... I want to hear the road and my surroundings, I'm all about the driving experience, not luxury! Anyone else resolve this "issue" on their GTI's? haha... Like did VW put a crap load of soundproofing or...

  13. MKV GTI
    Recently, I have noticed that after i have been driving for a little while and when my car gets warmed up, a zapping like noise appears about once every 3 seconds. The noise is coming from the back of the car, possibly near the exhaust and it lasts about half a second. I'm taking it to the a...
