I'm a bit naive with this engine I'm used to 1.8T. What is VCDS?Cheempeej said:My old one used to do this after a service, likely because the oil was thinner than old stuff. VCDS didnt indicate chain stretch either
VCDS is the diagnostics system used for the VAG range. Formally known as Vag-ComI'm a bit naive with this engine I'm used to 1.8T. What is VCDS?
Hoping it is normal as playing it safe and having it all changed is what sort of money? Had some (overpriced) work done at VW. Earlier and they claimed not to recognise the noise, surely they should do if there a big main dealer! Probably pulling me fiddle in the hope if its serious that they'll get the work!
Did you get it done at the main dealers?R32 Baz said:Sounds abit like mine when I bought my r32, you could try changing tensioner at back of engine first. I didn't want to risk it so I just replaced chains, tensioners, guide rails and done few other things while engine was out but it's not cheap.
Not a bad idea, what code would flag up?MUSHY 16V said:You could do that or if you could Find someone on hear that's near to you that has vcds
They could test it for you
If the chains are OK it could be The dual mass flywheel it can make a noise like that as well
Cool, fingers crossed my bro still has Vagcom as I'm pretty keen to take it off my mind specially with the noise issue I'm having.Cheempeej said:No codes, you need to check measuring blocks 208 & 209 on VCDS to see if it over 8. Remember there are a few variables that can affect the read out
Cam + crank corrolationif it had a fault code it would most likely have the engine light on by now
cant remeber them off the top of my head but read the fault codes on my friends r32 and it had the 3 that come up for the chains his has the engine light coming on
i'm going to check mesuring blocks 208\209 they should be with in +8/-8
when he comes back with it
thats the ones i gotCam + crank corrolation
If the chain was stretched the fuelling would be all to france anyway? Or would it compensate?thats the ones i got
dont think it is over fueling but never looked that hard at the messuring blocks as i was trying to find the ones for the chains
and he only came over so i could dump the eeprom from his clocks so i could fix some clocks long story lol
am going to have a second look as the light have come back on
in fact one of the fault codes for the cams came back right away
