It might not be broken but need to be realigned. Once in a while the default position for idle is lost and needs to be re-learned by the ECU using a scan tool. This is called throttle idle position adaption.

There is a small vacuum pipe from the EGR solenoid that was disconnected, by reconnecting this pipe the problems (that I have had ever since I had a new head some 30,000 miles ago from a VW main dealer) have gone away.

VW GOLF 1.4 1999 S. Gearbox makes whining sound at idle. once clutch is pressed sound goes. car drives fine with no noise in 1st-4th gears. unable to select 5th gear.. just grinds and wont engage. VW Golf...


No good news on this one I think
Your whining sound problem is the Layshaft bearings in the gearbox are badly worn. It also seems that the baulk rings are damaged on 5th gear.

The parts aren't really that expensive, it's the labor these places charge an hour. Call around and see who can do it the cheapest, unless you want to do it your self.
