Without more information about where on the engine the whirring is coming from its hard to say but I would check the idler and tentioner pulleys on the belt first.

This is when an engine typically misses, there is allot fo load on it, have the spark plug wires checked for any burn marks where they go over the spark plug.

replace your fuel filter first. If that does not do it, then try an air-flow meter. (if the check engine light is on it may be an airflow meter.

SOURCE: Shaking engine, weak power, blinking check engine light

You have a bad coil pack, they usually crack from age and heat. It's best to replace them all. Check for a VW recall on this item.

SOURCE: My 2004 passat TDI is giving me an exhaust leak sound noise.

This vehicle certainly does have a waste gate and they do have problems. However the waste gate diverts exhaust internally so you would not hear any unusual noise if it was being problematical. Also if the expected boost from the turbo did not match the actual boost there would be a check engine code and light on. If the hoses between the Turbo & the intake have a leak there may be a similar loss in power depending on the extent of the leak. It would be best to scan the engine computer to see if there are any Codes.

SOURCE: 1999 VW Passat 1.8 Turbo replaced Suction Pump

If the vacuum pump was a used part did you **** on the pipe to check if it operates correctly,and then there is the throttle plate(accelerator), it needs cleaning as this causes hesitation(remove the fat black pipe on the front right and hold the plate open manualy and wipe clean with wd40 etc, dont use carb cleaner as this removes throttle plate bearing grease) as does dirty air filter, sparkplugs and like you state vacuum hoses.On my passat i replaced all vacuum hoses and clamps as they split after 5 years from heat etc.Dont waste time replacing one, do all.Clean and wd40 your ht leads and clean and inspect the sparkplugs as damp etc causes hesitation.Hows the air filter.

I have a whirring or griding in my drivetrain. I can coast donw a hill and let the engine idle and I still get the noise. It doesn't sound any different going around corners and gets louder as the speed...


this sounds like(no pun intended) you have a wheel hub bearing assembly failing. they will start a whirring or humming noise and then a growling or grinding noise the worse they get. from your description it is a rotational noise and gets louder and maybe a higher pitch as the vehicle speed increases. have this checked out right away so no further damage is done. they are not cheap assemblies as most GM and Saturn vehicles have the ABS sensor built into them(if your Vue has ABS).

p1545 is a throttle control malfuction code

You can try to reset the throttle body by opening the hood and drivers door then turning your key to the accessory position. You will hear the throttle body whir and click. It may take up to two minutes. Afterward, the car will relearn your habit of driving and adjust accordingly.
