Question about 2006 Volkswagen Jetta

1 Answer

Tdi engine noise

Got the oil changed, went to the airport and left the car there for a week. Upon arrival the engine was noticeably louder (knocking). Brought it in and mechanic changed the tensioner but that did not eliminate the abnormal engine knocking noise. He said that maybe the AC compressor from sitting and oil settling is making the noise. Not buying that...Been like this for about a month now with no changes in the noise or the performance of the car. How worried should I be?

    Is it actually a/c pump? Remove serpentine belt and run motor. If noise is still there, it will be with the engine. If noise is gone, a/c, p/s, or alternator. I doubt oil settling in a/c pump was cause,highly unlikely.

If you drove after the oil change, I would kind of rule that out. There are many noises an engine makes and nine are good so you should be concerned about it. Bring it to another guy to check if you're not satisfied with this guy.

SOURCE: shorter serpentine belt on 2001 jetta tdi

Yes you can get a shorter belt and bypass the ac. It may be as simple as going to the parts store and tell them you have 2001 jetta no ac. Just keep the receipt.
You should also disconnect the a/c compressor connectors/wires/plugs also, try doing this before you bypass the ac first incase doing so gives you warning lights on the dash board.
Also know that the defrost setting uses the a/c so it will take longer to get the condensation off the inside of the window.

SOURCE: 2003 VW Passat Malfunction Indicator Lamp on

I have a 2003 Passat GLX V6 and i havent been experiencing this issue, however from my experience with VW, the early 2000 models of the passat that have a 1.8T 4 cylinder engine have a major issue with what has been deemed "oil sludge" you have to be careful with this engine oil wise and make sure to get the oil changed every 3,500 - 4,500 miles and make sure you get the full synthetic oils for it and the proper filters :-) the turbo that is on this model heats up the oil to extreme temperatures and if not serviced regularly you will have problems.... i hope this helps! i would have someone check it again for this issue... hopefully you get to it before it becomes costly!

SOURCE: 2006 vw jetta tdi service engine light reset

With the key in the ignition (but not turned), press and hold the Odometer Reset Button on the right hand side of the panel. While still holding that button, turn the key (although not far enough to start the engine) and then press and hold the Minute button on the left side of the instrument pane(if pressing doesnt work try turning the knob clockwise until service light has gone off and skip the pressing)l. Release both buttons at the same time.

Not getting oil to the pistons. Making knocking noise. Wont stay on.


Hello
Has the engine been run low on oil? Does the knocking get louder as the engine warms up? Have you had a automotive technician listen to this noise? Pistons don't really knock, the bearings in the engine called the crankshaft and piston connecting rod bearings do make a loud knocking noise, if that is the case the engine must be removed from the car and rebuilt.

(1999 Honda Passport) I have a knock in my engine, it is getting to be very loud and I have been told I have a lifter out. I bought the car about a month ago from a family friend who didn't need it...


Dude.. Your looking at needing a new engine. There are no lifters in a dual overhead cam engine. There are only rockers. If you have a "kncok" its more than likely a rod. That means new engine.

If you killed the engine by not adding oil, fixing the rod now is not an option. You have damaged all of the rod and main bearings. Its only a matter of time before the others fail as well.

Engine knocking noise in 2000 saab 9-3 SE?


It's a common problem with these cars i am actually fixing mine as of now. That car is all about oil pressure and when it is low you'll start to get a tap and or what sounds like a knock due to the lifters not having enough pressure. Try taking your oil pan off and check your oil pick up line going from the oil pan to the turbo. A lot of times it gets a lot of sludge build up and makes the pressure little to none. If that looks clear check the slump inside the oil pan and see if that has sludge build up. Well hope this helped

My engine is knocking and missing


I think you have run the oil down low or have had a blockage in the oil gallery to the crankshaft.Resulting in the bottom end bearings wearing out.Drain the oil and check for metal particals.good luck!!
