Hey all,

2004 Jetta GLS wagon with BEW engine.

Car has always been very noisy and vibrates more intensely between ~1800-2000 rpm. I would say it increases in sound intensity by 2 or 3 times through this narrow range. If I set it on cruise control in this range the noise and vibration is persistent (i.e. it's not a transient).

Is this just the normal behavior of a BEW engine, or does it indicate something else wrong (i.e. resonance of crankshaft or bad motor mount) ?

Can you tell roughly where it's coming from? It could be a heat shield or exhaust hangar coming loose. I have a metal skid plate on mine that every so often will get a rock or something kicked up between it and the oil pan and cause a lot of noise.

I can't tell where it's coming from but I'll see if I can get someone to bring it up to that RPM in neutral and stick my head under the hood.
