Sounds like a gearbox bearing ,,,this sounds like a growling noise usually when accelerating although as the problem gets worse it can happen constantly ,,, wheel bearings can growl too but will give a constant noise regardless of acceleration ,,, you need to see to this quickly as the more you drive you will cause more damage and cost to you ,,,,bearings will fix it in the early stages but if more damage is done you could have to pay for new gears and shafts which is expensive

    Could it be possible that there is a universal joint going out?

  • jeremiah horgan Feb 11, 2012

    joints cause a clicking sound mostly on full steering to the left or right,, also can be described as a crackling sound ,,,, usually does not happen when driving straight ahead

Manual transmissions are pretty much bullet proof. More likely CV joints or wheel bearing. Check ****** fluid level, listen if worse on slow tight turns from CV joints, and jack it up to see if bearings feel loose or if you feel any vibration through brake pedal?

SOURCE: Finding Thermostat on 98 Jetta GLS

Its to the right of the water pump towards the bottom of the engine.. Follow your lower radiator hose. Make sure to get some G12 coolant from VW before you do it. If you mix the coolants they turn into a gel that will cause you to overheat.

Do you really need the Rotors replaced? How many miles? Are they metal on metal when you brake? Can you have them turned at an auto parts suply house? Remove and replace as in solution #1 but explore yor options first.

SOURCE: 5 error cods on my 2002 Jetta GLS 1.8 Turbo Engine

Check the performace range of the up stream O2 sensor. A bad O2 snesor will set the code P0172, P0420 and possible misfires on the cylinders (to rich), to much fuel in the cylinders. The P2181 could be caused by a bad temperature sensor or a faulty thermostat. I would go for the temp. sensor or the thermostat first, clear the codes and then drive the vehicle and see if any other code sets. If it does then check &/or change the O2 sensor if faulty, burned out or has slow response.....

sounds like the belt needs tightening or replacing so yes you are indeed correct about the squeal, as for the rumble depends on how bad the rumble is but it shouldnt be caused by either you mentioned.
