Question about 1998 Volkswagen Cabrio

1 Answer

I have a 1993 caravelle, when I start it in the morning it makes a loud noise somewhere by the engine compartment when you accelerate.The sound goes away when the engine is warm enough. I removed the live wire on the starter upon starting-up, and the sound was gone on acceleration, but back again when the wire is replaced back on the starter. What problem is this?

Good morning! Just to add to my previous question...1993 GMC Sierra 1500; I am experiencing a high pitch noise once the engine warms up. However, as I accelerate, the noise disappears. It returns when I...


sounds like a vacuum leak from a mad gasket
as the engine warms up the gap increases allowing the noise
on acceleration the vacuum is very low so the noise is not heard
check for hoses that are cracked , loose or fallen off

How is the oil level in the engine? Have you actually checked that? Also, what kind of oil (and what weight) are you running in the engine, and how many miles are on the car? You may be running oil that is too thin for the amount of wear on the engine parts! oil leaks cause low oil levels!

Loud Vibration / Sound Under Acceleration And Starting Engine.


Get the engine mounts checked. A bad mount may allow part of the engine to lie on a body or frame part, allowing engine vibrations to become very loud. Torquing of the engine (under load) can cause the same type problems.

Yukon makes loud noise when backing out and turning steering wheel


If the noise is coming from the engine compartment then you may just be low on steering fluid.

Can you describe where the noise is coming from and what it sounds like?

Is is more of a grinding, or more of a whining or humming?

Loud noise from engine bay on start up. it continues when the car is running. the only way to describe it is it sounds like a whosing noise


I don't know what whosing sounds like, but I have a high pitched whirring noise coming from my somewhere in the engine bay, my noise starts when the car starts and continues while driving, goes away at around 60 mph but will come back when I accelerate or decelerate, I have a friend that is a master tech at volkswagen, he suspects the alternator is making the noise, this is my first TDI, I bought it with 150k on it, I don't have any experience with TDI's, but am a Service Advisor, and it has been my general experience that all volkswagens are posessed! :) Always having some sort of electrical issue, Not sure if that will help.... Good Luck!

Try checking the heat shield on your exhaust system. You should have one over the manifold and one over your cat converter under the car.
