Will a 2 litre vw Golf 2011 diesel fit a 1.6 diesel 2011 Golf

I wouldn't suggest it. It wouldn't be just an engine swap that you unplug and unbolt and and then reverse...thats not to say it can't be done with a lot of thinking and work and reprogramming that's usually for vw experts...your better off to keep looking at other wreckers for the exact motor

if hydraulic tappets then do this darin a drop of oil out of the engine so its about min on the dip stick then add some diesel to the oil say about half a litre then a good three capfulls of fairy washing up liquid ,has to be fairy though then run car for a week and the noise will abait ,now change the oil and the filter and use the cheapest diesel/petrol engine oil you can buy must be for diesels as well though then every 5000/6000 miles change it with a filter every third oild change and your engine will run as sweet as a nut and last for ever

My 2003 vw golf comfortline 1.4 petrol sounds like a diesel when started and driven oil level checked and ok

Sounds like an hydralic tappet is failing, try not to do many miles, get someone with experience to have a listen as soon as you can the last thing you need is for it to do real damage and leave you stranded.

Fingers crossed it will be a small issue.

VW's are VERY strong engines :o)

Serious electrical problems wiv vw golf mk4 gti turbo yr 2000

I had a VW rabbit that developed mad electrical problems. It started when one day the headlights remained on and would not shut off. It turned out that a $2.00 gasket for the antenna wire had failed. This allowed road water from the wheel well to leak onto the fuse box. In time the fuse panel corroded and shorted out. I had to replace the fuse box twice and use rubber epoxy to seal the leak.
Check all fuses and electrical wiring for signs of shorts or corrosion.

Red oil light flashing, oil change no problem but light still flashing noise coming from tappets are they related I have a problem on my vw jetta ? flashing light on my dash

Yes it is related, don't drive it. First thing you should do is install a new oil filter even if it isn't time for an oil change.

Ticking noise coming from car when cold

are they hydraulic tappets?? not adjustable but a mechaniics bodge if they are hydraulic ,,,,put a 5 sec squeeze of washing up liquid into oil filler and half a litre of diesel -----run for about 2/3 days without doing any boy racer stuff ,,,drain oil and refill with a diesel grade oil like shell rotella or anything cheap off of the supermarket shelf and refill with this and add some more washing up liquid .run for a couple of weeks then change oil and filter .and refill with a cheap diesel/petrol oil from supermarket and change oil every 6000kms or 5000miles or a least once a year more frequent if low mileage .this should free off the build up of gum in the hydraulic tappets without stripping the engine.expensive oil is well known for causing this as poly methyl methacrylate which is used to hold the oil viscosity has a nasty habit when full of crud from not changing oil regulary to clag up.moral of story change oil often but a filter every third oil change
