Question about 2001 Volkswagen Golf
My deisel golf is exhausting through the inlet, it is making a popping noise and is running flat, sounds like a big end bearing noise but its not, when you take anything off at the inlet side it sounds like a very deep pop,pop,pop.
egr has been checked,turbo is only 1 year old and original,
the garage seems to suspects something amiss with the valves,but i am not convinced,
it happend about 3 months ago for about 15 seconds then went off, the car goes like stink(very fit), but then my other half went on a journey and it came back on for quite a while in a very flat mode the put itself right, then the following day i then dropped her off, but had to pick her mother up, but when i pulled over it happened again and has not recovered,and is now in my friends service centre, could this be the syptoms of a sticky valve?
Yes,Check cylinder compression,then you know where to check the valves,probably a burned or bent valve.
