Question about 2001 Volkswagen Beetle
Have a 2001 beetle 1.8 turbo. Lately at low speed and idle it has a rattling sound in the engine. At first I thought something was loose up front, but that isnt the case. Replaced the breather hoses and others and vacuum hoses seem to be ok. Did add some coolant several times and wasn't the same kind that was from the dealer. It seems to be fine and when the engine registring 203 degrees that is when it starts in. Am I zeroing in on the problem. Thanks, Mike
I have been having a similar problem (2001 1.8-TDI Beetle). The rattling sounds almost like wind buffeting the car/whistling, and increases in intensity as each gear revs higher (it gets quieter after a shift, and then builds again). at its loudest (before a shift), there's an additional rattle similar to tin cans in a paper bag being shaken (it's faint, but it's there). I just had the oil changed and the car looked over... not sure what could be the problem, but would like to have even a vague idea before I take it in. Any thoughts? Thanks!
