Question about 2000 Volkswagen Beetle
WHEN I CRANK UP MY 99 VW BEETLE I HEAR THIS LOUD TICKING NOISE AND WHEN I'M DRIVING IT SOUNDS LIKE A LOUD RACE CAR IT EVEN GETS LOUDER THE HIGH THE SPEED GOES YOU CAN HEAR ME COMING FROM AROUND THE CORNER. MY COUSIN HAVE AN 01 BEETLE WITH 135000 MILES AND HER'S MAKES NO SOUND AT ALL. MY CAR JUST GOT 100000 MILES AND I HAVE NO LIGHTS THAT COMES ON INDICATING THAT THERE'S A PROBLEM. CAN YOU TELL ME WHAT THIS CAN BE I REALLY WANT TO HAVE A QUITE ENGINE TOO!
This seems to be a classic case of "disentegrating exhaust system syndrome." There is either a hole(s) somewhere in your exhaust system or there is a leak somewhere. Probably the easiest way to tell where the noise is coming from is to start your car and just listen around in the engine bay, under the car, and at the muffler. Also do a visual inspection of the exhaust system to see if you can see any holes in the piping. I have also seen hairline cracks in the exhaust header itself that can cause the loud ticking noise that can be a little tricky to track down.

I have a 1999 beetle after I started this am it made a loud whining sound almost like it was idling. Hard to describe...when I investigated it appeared to be coming from the right side of the engine....after about three or four minutes it stopped.
