I am having problems with a persistent noise which has developed over
the last 8 months on my 02 1.8T A6 47K which has the multitronic
The nature of the problem is that when I accelerate between the 4,000
and 6,000 rev range there is a persistent "flapping" sound coming from
the engine. At first I thought it was some trim that had come adrift
due to the noise it was making.
I have had the car into the local dealership on 3 separate occasions
only to be told that the noise is nothing unusal.
The car comes out of warranty in this summer and I do need to get to
the root cause of the problem as I do not wish to have any expensive
gearbox or turbo repairs in the future.
I have also started going through quite a lot of engine oil which is
also a little concerning again to be told that this is again quite
usual this type of car.
I will be taking the car back to the dealer but thought I would post
the query on the board to see if anyone else had experience to help
colaberate a story to present to them.
