Try a throttle body cleaning.
check your spark plugs by removing the cables and checking if the engine sound gets worse, if for one of them there's no difference, this one would be faulty

SOURCE: vw golf 1990 - problem

1. This could be because the fan motor is not workin. Check the fuse and check to see if you are getting power to the fan motor. If these checks are ok, then I would suspect the fan motor.
2. This will most likely be the drive belt that runs the alternator that either needs adjusting or replacing.
3. You will need to check your ignition timing.

Regards

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.

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

Hi:
Does your cars check engine light come on or off at all? If you had a misfire, it would trip the check engine light. Often a misfire is caused by a bad ignition module, and not just one sparkplug, but the only way to see what your car is doing is to have it scanned to see if anything is stored in the memory. Often , auto parts stores will do this for free, and that way you might have a clue to what is going on under the hood!

Sluggish loss of power and popping noises from engine


Clean the distributer cap in the inside, it has water in it thus causing all the noises and the back fire.

Water is probably leaking onto your engine somehow and shorting out the plugs.
