Question about Volkswagen Passat

1 Answer

I have a 2002 vw passat. Each time i take off from a complete stop, it makes a loud popping noise one or two times until it changes gears. from what i can tell from looking under the hood, it looks like the front torque rod is missing the rubber bushing. Could this be causing the popping noise? If so, what is the easiest way to replace it if doing it myself?

YES,IT IS POSIBLE,JUST REMOVE THE BOLTS THAT HOLD THE STRUT MOUNT ON,and replace it,you will have to rock the car for the engine to move to align the bolts up,also check the axles out,they can cause this noise also,when the cv is worn out.

My 2000 passat just started making a loud noise when i accelerate and it seems like its moving slower in acceleration and reving higher


my good friend I believe the solution I give might be not good for you as to what you state It sounds that you are loosing your automatic gear box. Have you ever changed the oil & filter of your Gear box? If not that was the reason.

always get a second opinion from an accredited professional a transmission shop that works on your make of vehicle
may be a simple tcm /pcm or other electronic control module
To have the necessity to replace the box , the water would have had to get into the transmission or the mechanical/electronic sections
