OMG!!! the dealer is trying to rip u off big time!!!!!!!! i would seriously cuss out the service manager at the dealer ship. Sounds like u have a belt loose or its rubbing somewhere. thats the reason 95% of any vehicle would screech on start up then soon go away.. get the belts checked BUT NOT BY THAT DEALER!!!!

Vw golf mk4 abs warning light on


If your ABS runs thru clean upon initial starting of the car and only turns on when the car has been put into motion,
You have a vibration occuring near the wheel speed sensors that is tripping the ABS system up.
Is there any howling noise while driving down the road ( like the howl the tires on a truck would make , but more subdued), and it goes away when you are driving down the road and turn one way or the other?

'96 VW Golf GL with 2.0 motor. Cold start knock


It sounds like the hydraulic lifters are bleeding down after sitting for a while... there are ball checks which are supposed to prevent this... Try using a good engine flush (a product that frees sticky lifters) and replace the oil with a good synthetic... Hope this helps...;-)

My 1997 VW Golf GL has rattle as I accelerate in first and second


I am going through the exact same problem with my 1997 golf 2.0 I-4.   I am making the assumption that this noise is loudest at about 1200-1500 rpm, or atleast most noticeable.   It could be attributed to a faulty catalytic converter which is a necesarry fix (in order to smog), and being that your O2 sensor is hooked into that whole system, you could be potentially giving away a few mpg.  This a relatively easy issue to deal with, and noise should go away when the converter is replaced.
