I replaced the VVT along with the timing chain :(. just another expense with no result. Sound definitely seems to be coming from the lower/bottom end of the engine

Re: Tapping/Rattling noise when accelerating

SO the sound doesn't go away once accelerating faster ? Mines only there at low rpm, so between idle-1100 rpm when at a stand still, or around 2000rpm when moving. no or very low noise otherwise. Have changed everything I can think off now and it's still there. I think the best route now is for you...

Re: Tapping/Rattling noise when accelerating

My dad has an old passat and one time an injector broke and every time I would accelerate a tapping like sound started. The higher the revs the faster the sounds were. IDK if this can happen with the 6R's injectors. SO the sound doesn't go away once accelerating faster ? Mines only there at low rpm...

Re: Tapping/Rattling noise when accelerating

Definitely not anything to do with the drive belt as i've tested by replicating the sound without the drive belt on. Seem...

Tapping/Rattling noise when accelerating

Hi everyone I've had this noise that I just can't seem to locate. It is only present when accelerating around low RPMs. The sound is not noticed when idling, though it can be heard very slightly when reving in P. The noise seems to be coming from the chain/belt side but very hard to pin point. Even ...
