Question about 2000 Volkswagen Jetta TDI
My jetta engine is making a clicking noise that is unusual. the car has 106,000 miles, when i first start the car you don't hear it. but by the time i drive to the store which is right around the corner from my house, i hear it and it dosen't go away. the motor oil is the only thing i have changed recently. i have always used castrol gtx 10w30. the last oil change i made, i used pennsoil 10w30. what do you think the problem could be? my co-worker thinks it could be a lifterthat needs adjusting. if you agree, how expensive is this on my car?
The only efficient way to indentify the fault is by getting the fault codes read from the on-board diagnostic system. Without that data everything is just guesswork.
However, an unusual ticking could be a failing cambelt which is "new engine time" if not rectified immediately.While there, check the alternator and hydraulic pump belts .
Hope this helps. If this "fixes ya", I'd appreciate a rating for my reply, If not, please delay the rating and add a comment with any extra info you have and I will try to think of something else.
