VW polo 1.4tdi bluemotion engine noise when starting idle

Post by russ.sharp » Wed Dec 04, 2019 5:06 pm

Hi!

I recently bought a polo 1.4tdi bluemotion 65 plate, and have noticed a strange sound from the engine bay when I start the car.

Its kind of a clunking choking sound, I've attached a link to a video I've taken of it on YouTube.

It only happens when the car is cold, as soon as I drive it the sound goes away and it runs lovely!

Any ideas what this could be? It's a worrying sound and if it's a problem I want to get it sorted out asap before it turns into something worse!


Thanks

Update, noise seems to stop as soon as I press the clutch 🤔
