I have a 2001 Volkswagen gti 1.8t that is making a ticking noise when the car is in idle, when I am driving the noise for away .. I recently changed the oil and oil filter and the problem is still there .....

From description you have given it could be either injectors operating as they get up in mileage they can get noisey or valve tip clearances, which could be be caused through wear or slight drop in idle RPM oil pressure

I drive a 2003 VW GTI. Theres a high rev sound after 3rd gear. Sounds like the engine is high reving and gets louder when the car gets faster even when shifting into a higher gear.

It needs rebuilding. The upper gear(s) are not locking in, so your likely wearing out your clutch when you drive fast. Get it rebuilt.

83 vw rabbit gti clanking/knocking sound

That doesnt sound good. Check the engine oil level and top up as necessary. If the noise is still there, then you should take it to a mechanic to check. It could mean that you need to either replace the engine or overhaul it. Hope that helps

Gollf gti 8v 1997 missfire at 3000 rpm


Try taking the wires coming from your distributor. and twist them around each other.that way they act like a homemade shielded cable. Like you said two wires running right beside each other act like a little antenna that’s what I had to do to a wheel speed sensor on a car when i worked at GM. I hope I said that to wear you can understand it

Let us know if that fixed your Car,

Gitting gti lights

The wiring is different, if your Golf had headlights with H4 bulbs then changing to high beam turns dip off. The GTi has separate dip and high lights, on high beam dip stays on (all 4 bulbs on).

Clicking noise on my 06 GTI!

You can be sure you have engine damage now. There is not just one thing to check. It needs to go to the shop ASAP before you drive it anymore.

Possible damages

Cam bearings
Main bearings
Rod bearings
Cracked rod and main caps
Bent rods
Damaged Piston and wrist pins
Damaged cam
Broke springs
Bent valves
Damged crank
The list can go on. So that is be best advice to give.

1991 vw golf gti- RPM stop working!

judging by the amount of km it has done i would say the rpm drive is faulty, this measures the amount of rotation in the camshaft and shows the "revolutions per minute". when this goes faulty it stops the read out on the dial, so you want to be looking for a device that measures the speed that the engine is turning, if you have, replace it and it should solve the problem
