Question about 2003 Volkswagen Golf

Open Question

VW Golf mark IV Strange sound in first gear

Im wondering if someone could shed some light on a possible problem with my car. When I start the engine or when idling it sounds fine.

But, when I pull off a strange sounds occurs which I can only describe as similar to the sound of blowing into a desk fan. Almost like a helicopter. It is also there in second gear but very faint and hardly audible at all. Third, fourth and fifth are fine.

As the car increases in speed the noise gets faster too.

Also, when idling and pushing in the clutch there is a similar noise half way through depression of the pedal.

It has only started making these sounds since it snowed about 2 weeks ago. Not sure if that would be relative but will mention that anyway just in case.

Hope with this information someone can identify a possible problem and any solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Andy.

SOURCE: 1994 Volkswagen MK1 golf knocking noise

Very simple.... I had this problem and it drove me Crazy.... your gearbox engine mount is gone. When you look at it it will look fine but when under load it moves. creating the knocking noise..

Use a crowbar (Very carefully) to move the engine to check.

SOURCE: Thumping coming from front end all speeds.

IF IT ONLY THUMPS WHEN YOUR CAR IS MOVING YOU COULD BE WRITE. PAY ATTENTION TO THE THUMPING CLOSLEY, DO YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE STEERING WHEEL, IF SO THE PROBLEM IS IN THE FRONT END. IF YOU FEEL A VIBRATION IN THE DRIVERS SEAT THE PROBLEM IS IH THE REAR END. YES THE VIBRATION FROM THE FRONT STEERING AND THE DRIVERS SEAT IS A WAY TO TELL WHERE THE PROBLEM IS

SOURCE: VW GOLF 1.4 1999 S. Gearbox makes whining sound at idle

No good news on this one I think
Your whining sound problem is the Layshaft bearings in the gearbox are badly worn. It also seems that the baulk rings are damaged on 5th gear.

SOURCE: 1995 VW GOLF STALLING AFTER ENGINE WARMS

Sounds like you might have a bad computer, or some wires shorted out. I would check for any power wires, showing ground.

How to wire in vw abf engine 2.0L 16v in to fuse box.


You'll need to use the wiring from the 2.0L motor. Your best bet is to get Bentley manuals for the car the motor came from and for yours. They have very very detailed wiring diagrams, to do the swap.

Vw Golf 98 clicking sound from engine when starting


If it just clicks when you are trying to start, the battery is low, near dead and needs recharge or replace.
If it starts and strange clicking continues, it is a sign of hydraulic valve lifters not functioning properly --which can be caused by low oil pressure (because of low oil level or bad oil pump). If the battery is good and drains dead after a while --something is connected that should not be. Even your dome light can do that --or the headlights on --or the parking lights on. Check the oil level, if low, add oil and check again.
