Make rure you are using 5W oil. That is if it a 1.8T. The loud tic and wineing sound could be the power stearing pump. Check to see if that is low. It is located front right behind the DS headlight under the hood. DO not for any reason use any other brand then VW PS fluid. The kind sold at auto part stores will cost you $300 at least in damage. They will ruin the hose and make any leak worse.

Wining sound when starting but when engine warms up it stops


This has so many variables...is the serpentine belt the original? It can be hardened with age, quiets when warmed up...could be tensioner pulley, this noise could come and go however...also is your weather very cold? If equipped with an automatic transmission, the age can exhibit unique cold sounds...if tranny never serviced, add a bottle of Lucas Oil Transmission Stabilizer to tranny fluid...read instructions, you do not have to drain anything...This is highly recommended for cleaning tranny. Hope this helps.

Wineing noise on excelerations


Check the power steering fluid reservoir under the hood it sounds like it is low, add some P/S fluid and see if the noise goes away, if so then it should be checked for a power steering system leak.

On a hyundai tiburon how do i know if the oil pressure is bad


If you have low oil pressure you should have a waring light or message, the engine will become noisy and if it is not repaired very soon you will here first a loud tapping noise then a loud knocking deep in the engine, and finally the engine will worst case blow up and parts may come out the bottom through the oil pan. Never drive any car that shows a low oil pressure warning light or message, stop the engine right away and have it checked by a shop.

Oil pressure warning statement and light on. Runs fine


sounds like your oil pump is trying to get stopped up or going out. Keep a eye on it. If you start hearing a tic, tic take to shop and check oil pump befor it messes up your motor, Good luck to you.

CAR WONT START ON FORD FALCON AU (AUTO)


Check the voltage on your battery. When the battery is low, you will still have lights and what not but not enough juice to start the car. Check the condition of your battery cables especially your ground. If everything check out fine, your problem may be a bad starter or the solenoid. If you replace the starter, replace the solenoid with it. Be sure to check the cable from the starter solenoid to the starter.
