Loss of power and ticking noise sounds like the hydraulic tappets are worn or the oil too thin and itsnot pressuring up the tappets ,cant be cat as these are not compulsory till 1992 vehicles and yours is a collectable classsic as its a 1986,try putting in a can of STP in the oil

There is a ticking noise from standard vw golf engine,


It would not hurt to check it but the loss of oil and the loss of coolant are worrying. I would have a compression test done to check the head gasket and head. The tick may be compression gas escaping at the gasket. That would also account for coolant loss. Have a pressure test done on the cooling system to check for leaks. Towing a trailer ( I guess that it had a bit in it) over a long distance at speed ( probably 60 mph or better) places strain on a good engine but if the engine is on par or below then faults appear

My 95 tahoe has an occasional ticking noise, loss of oil pressure at idle and loss of power


Prognosis is really bad, hate to tell you. Ticking comes from the valve lifters, losing lubrication due to lack of pressure and running dry. At redlights, when revs are at idle, oil pressure drops a lot, and engine really suffers. Have the vehicle taken immediately to a shop for proper diagnose and to see if engine can still be saved. The loss of power comes from the valves not actuating properly. Hydraulic lifters need oil at a decent pressure to "charge" , and if not charged, they will stay compressed, ruining valve lifting operation.

Ticking noise underneath the car approximately midway.


The sound you hear is the metal parts of your exhaust system and catalytic converter cooling down.Some cars are louder than others but the sound is perfectly normal.

85 Toyota Cressida. The Sun roof is stuck open!


I was lucky, the owners manual was still with the car and it addressed this problem. Tells you to remove the cover for the controls to the sun roof. Then remove the screw plug that is located in the forward left side of the control box hole (Need big screw driver to break it lose). Then remove the slug surounding the inner adjustment screw, being careful not to lose any shims or washers. Trun the adjustment screw counter clock wise to close the sunroof down and clock wise to shut the sunroof from the open position.
Looks like the motor is shoot. To prevent this from happening again I disconnected the white with black strip wire to the control pad and unsulated the lead. It can easiely be hooked back up in the future if the motor is replaced.
Good luck all!

it probably does need a tranny fluid change, but this wouldn't account for loss of power. The tranny is only reacting to the power provided by the engine. I'd think it's starting with power loss from the engine. The easiest and cheapest place to start is the fuel filter. It's probably getting plugged and restricting fuel flow when more power is required - as in going up a hill. The filter is about 8 to 12 dollars. The auto parts store can tell you where it's located.
