Now that i think of it, i think i can hear it from under the transmission..I was told by the VW dealership that I brought it too after buying, that it’s the clutch and doesn’t do any harm. Replacing it, it will just start to tick again and it’s pricey. It had a recall before and my car had it replaced. I’ll upload pics of the recall stickers when I get back outside
It sounds exactly the same like in those videos, i read that some people have replaced the fuel pump and the sound was gone or the injector with connector on it., my engine is AFN btw and yeah no codes.Can you send a sound clip of your engine sounds? That last clip also sounds pretty normal for a VW TDI (to me). My ALH injection pump has 334k mi on it and it "pings" while idling. That last clip sounds like mine pings.
If were me, I'd drive and enjoy it (yours isn't mine so caveat emptor). If your sound gets noticibly louder or you get a CEL, then diagnose (with VCDS). Your options are to take it a mechanic (that know ALHs) or the dealer (<-- don't ever do that).
I had my car since 2018 at 48k my mom had it before it’s always sounded like that to me, she has 277k now I had asked multiple mechanics all said it’s normal for these to sound like a bulldozer only time I had CEL is when the VW dealer fucked up my def and motor and had to replace motor turbo def intercooler (paid by vw) she got a new motor at 218k 2021 august and still sounded beautiful like that don’t let people tell you about your car they always tell me my car sounds like a bomb or a coffeemaker and I tell them that’a her she’s diesel and they shut up…. 😊 I might be wrong cuz I’m a girl but I pay super attention to my bulldozer coffeemaker I don’t know much about cars except all the stuff I’ve had done to mine. 😄Maybe the sound is actually normal for this engine, cause every video of AFN i've seen has this ticking.
Light? That ticking is loudish but it’s how heaven sounds to me
Although the clock is loud, I think that's how paradise sounds.could be even because of this Diesel System Cleaner | Additives Diesel | Wynn's Europe drift boss which means injectors
