Question about 1999 Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

Motor is knocking but has plenty of oil

My 1999 VW Passat started a loud knocking sound and I don't know what to check. I've checked the oil (1st thing), then the antifreeze and the belts. These are all fine, but the knocking is kind of scary especially when I have no clue where it is coming from.

The knocking could becoming from the cam or crank shafts. Do not mess about, get a mechanic to check it out. I hope I am wrong.

How to find out if loud knocking is piston or thrown rod, plus battery will not stay charged. This all happened after backfire and blown muffler


The only way to determine what it is would be to remove the sump from the motor, Either way you need another motor as the cost to repair will be greater than the cost to replace.

On my 1.8 volkswagan passat AWM engine,the camshaft drive chain tensioner is knocking,the engine has plenty of oil reaching the top,and the engin runs good.what would make it knock so loud?


I bet your car sounds like a diesel without the gas savings benefits. Your only solution is to replace the cam tensioner! Call VOA to complain about the manufacture defect.

I would check the oil pressure sensor and the oil pump itself. You can take the sensor out and use a mechanical gauge to check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is within specs, you need a new sensor, if not, you need a new pump.

Loud knocking


Sounds like you may need a motor, or something in/on transmission. What is your oil pressure like?

My 1999 passat now is working but after I drive it around a bit the oil light starts flashing and beeping then after a while it would stop then it will start again.I checked oil dip stick and oil is fine...


OK, your car has a sensor that sends the signal to the light and tells it to blink if the oil level is low or deprecating. this sensor module is malfunctioning and will need to be replaced. this will fix this issue. Note- if it has been more than 4000 miles since your last oil change, you may be receiving this blinking pertaining to the consistency of the oil inside this engine. I suspect the sensor module is malfunctioning.

VW Passat 2002 oil light staying even after topping up


Is the motor knocking? Does the light go out when some RPM's are added? If the motor is knocking, you have a big problem with the motor. If not, you may just have a bad oil sending unit/wiring.

I have a loud tic and wineing sound and the oil light comes on i add oil and it got worst


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.
