Hi Jay, What do you need to clean and why? If the intake is fouled with oil it would seem to me that the turbo has become defective and is leaking oil into the manifold. Let us know what the problem is and if you want to clean the outside or the inside of the ducting and manifold? there is a great big difference. Regards John
I have been having a similar problem (2001 1.8-TDI Beetle). The rattling sounds almost like wind buffeting the car/whistling, and increases in intensity as each gear revs higher (it gets quieter after a shift, and then builds again). at its loudest (before a shift), there's an additional rattle similar to tin cans in a paper bag being shaken (it's faint, but it's there). I just had the oil changed and the car looked over... not sure what could be the problem, but would like to have even a vague idea before I take it in. Any thoughts? Thanks!
