  1. Gave my bready a bit of an Italian tuneup a few weeks back and since then there has been an intermittent ticking from the engine bay when warmed up - loud enough to be heard inside the cabin but obviously much louder when under the hood. I traced it by ear (as much as you can with these slightly paranoid goose chases) to that little green valve attached to the back of the engine bay. It has a couple of hoses going to it (one black, one transparent), both of which go to that cansiter on the bottom-left of the bay and an electrical connection. The ticking noise can be 'felt' through the pipes close to the unit - I assume its a valve ticking open and closed? So the questions: 1) What is it? As far as I can see its something to do with the emissions control system 2) Is it knakered? 3) Any idea why it would be springing into this form of life after running the engine at 4k revs for 10 minutes? I mean the engine runs great, never been better, so whatever it is it isn't really affecting anything. Happy to ignore it but equally happy to fix it!
  2. Hi guys,A while back my golf developed a very annoying ticking noise. It developed from one start to the next. I have added a video here so you guys can hear it. Please mind the costmetic state of the engine...it is a work in progress. Also mind the rubbish video quality On a side note - the oil was changed just after the noise developed but it didnt really make a difference. Video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCnfB0i8vfw&feature=youtu.beIs there anyone out there who can give me an idea of what this could be? I have found that the noise is coming from the first cylinder area, just about the line of the top of the exhaust manifold.It does sound to me like it is the tappets, but the sound doesnt go away once the engine is warm. I did also take the rocker cover off to check whether any of them seemed super squishy, but all of them were holding pressure fine? Unless that doesnt make a difference.The other possible candidates i've seen (from what they generally sound like) is pinging, piston slap or a spun bearing. Im hoping it isn't piston slap or a spun bearing. Couldnt afford to repair piston slap and a spunbearing would be a pain to fix.I guess a bit of extra info about the engine would be that it is a 1.3 NZ and is on 190000 kilometers / 118000 miles. It also has a vacuum advance distributor, but the vacuum pot is knackered (something that will be fixed as soon as I can afford it)Hope someone has an idea :) much appreciated. Pleeeaase help!Edit : I cannot afford to take the car to a mechanic, but I am more than able to service/rebuild the engine myself
  3. Hi All, Driving back from work today I noticed a pretty worrying ticking noise coming from the drivers side ( i think ) of my engine bay. I've got a 6n2 polo SDI engine and its always been loud but now its intermittently "ticking" Its almost as high pitched as an electrical spark or tiny bit of metal pinging around. Here is a video of the ticking - Having a quick google TDI's are susceptible to injector leaks and "lifters" going on them so I'll be looking at them as soon as I can. Is there anything else I should be checking, not mcuh knowledge on diesels, only worked on petrols before! Cheers in advance!
  4. Hi folks! I am back with some problems again. When I got my polo it alrady had a knocking sound somewhere around from sparkplug area. But now it got a bit louder. I did some diagnostics and come up wit this code: 17733 - Knock-Control: Cylinder 1: Regulation Limit Exceeded P1325 - 35-00 - - Is the error code somehow related to that knocking/ticking sound? And how can I fix it? Polo 6n2 2000 1Lpetrol Tnx.
