1999 VW Golf front end noise

Recently I had my oil changed and asked the mechanic to re -attach a guard plate that I had notice hanging down under the front end of the car. Now, especially on the highway going 60 to 70 mph, my car sounds like a small plane; there is a droning noise that is a dead ringer for a Cessna twin engine idle. Can you think what is going on? Thank you!

VW Golf 2007 1.9TDI, I was recently in a accident approx 20mph, and crashed head on into a turning car. What is making the kinda rattling/clicking noise, more noticeable during gear changes.


This could be almost anything from loose trim to broken body parts, you should get the car checked by bodyshop to make sure that it is safe to drive

Does a 1.4 16 v vw golf have a maf


this is a later model and not a 1999 and as such it may need the engine diagnostics reading as such this vehicle has to be connected to the internet via dealers digital signature to source the problem ,even if you know what part you need and change it then it still needs programming in to the car computer this is out of the realms of a weekend mechanic and for that matter even a mechanic like myself ,so you will gin and bear it and pay the dealer and get used to this as the newer the car then the less can be done to it by anyone except the dealership.

Golf mk 4 1.6 1999 - slow acceleration at times. Any solutions


Hi,I just want to tell the house the solution i gave to my vw golf 4 1999 1.6ltre Automatic,that was showing,slow acceleration.This slow acceleration happen when there is hold-up and i want to accelerate the golf will be dragging up to the point that other cars will pass and leave me behind.Also to climb a hill was a serious problem too.
My vw golf 4 most times off without any sign while driving.but if i start it,it pick up again.during this problem i notice that the fuel drop faster than i thought.
however,the only light showing on my dashboard is the ABS yellow light which was constant. During this problem,i google the web for solution,that why am posting my for others to learn too.
SOLUTION.
First if you unplug the airflow meter and there is NO change in Engine sound does not mean that your airflow meter is bad.My does same and its still what am using till today.
Second,the only check light was the yellow ABS light.What this means is that it can never be Engine or Sensor problem.So,there is NO point wasting money for scanning.
There problem was purely MECHANICAL PROBLEM.let me just inform you that I change my fuel filter and fuel pump which was confirm weak,but that did not solve the problem.
The problem was from the FUEL INJECTOR.I bought a caburator cleaner and my mechanic ask me to start the car.He then loosen the air vacum that is attached to the carburetor.He then throttle the car seriousely up to the point that the RPM hit the red lines.While he was doing this he was at thesame time spraying the caburator cleaner into the Caburator to clean the fuel injector too.While I was washing him doing it,my car did some lightening sound that shows that every area is clean now.
Ever since then,I have been driving this car without any acceleration problem nor offing problem.

2003 vw golf making a ticking noise from under the hood?? the oil light blinks on sometime but goes off when i get above 3000 rpms?? what does this mean


i think it means you need to add oil,,,if you got a oil light comming on that means its low on oil and a ticking noise that also means its low on oil,,,change your oil asap before you ruin the engine

Yellow check engine light on after having oil change and splash guard tied back on


Could be a number of things. Should still be under 3/36000 warranty. Take it to the dealership. If the place you got your oil change from used the wrong weight oil, this could cause the light to come on. There are thousands of possibilities, which is why you need a computer to check them now.

Creaking sound from front passenger side of VW Polo 2003


the most common problem is the anti roll bar .where the bushes clamp around the bar there is a piece of plastic that the bush clamps around,the plastic breaks and can fall out .or the bushes that you describe are also common as a cause of noise or broken front springs .it will be one of them for sure.cheers
