Question about 1997 Volkswagen Passat
Re; 1997 vw golf passat 1.6 auto Lh drive.
Mileage 120,000. A vibation has developed in the vicinity of the underside of rhe rear seat (not loose exhaust pipe) which increases in loudness with incease in speed and sounds metallic. Taking ones foot of the accelerator noise disappears and resumes again with increase in speed. Note. Noise dissappears when accelerating around a bend. I don't think it's related to the engine as their is no noise when engine reved in neutral Sounds more like diff gear box or transmission. Can you assist with trouble shooting PS Sounds expensive! Can you obtain a Haynes Maintenance Manual for this model for me?
Have the tyres checked as i think you may have a deformed tyre ,its front wheel drive by the way

It's sludge. Drop the pan drain the oil, clean the screen and the tube, flush the engine and use only fully synthetic oil. This is a hundreds of dollar repair but if you drive it as it is even for ten miles you'll need a new engine. This was an oversight by VW, recommending inadequate oil and it was covered under warranty but yours is out of warranty. It's been a month so you've probably already discovered all this. I can't believe no one in fixya told you right.
