While it is difficult to diagnose car sounds over the Internet, I would say pretty confidently that the sound is coming from the transmission for the reasons below; You have stated that the pitch of the sound follows the speed of the vehicle, which would lead me to believe this is specifically the final drive or 'differential' (inside the transmission on a ...

Goto an auto parts store. Have them scan your car with their ODBII scantool. They will pull the code and tell you what O2 sensor you need to change. Change the O2 sensor. If you are still having issues with the vehicle then perhaps go down the road of having the turbo disassembled, inspected and cleaned.

A faulty installation can cause the bearing to fail prematurely - particularly if it is done up too tight - this is often a problem on older cars that need more axle endfloat than modern vehicles. Also if the bearing wasn't properly greased on installation, the unlubricated wear would destroy it fairly quickly... It's also possible that other problems such ...

Almost any amount of load you put on the battery is going to drop the voltage. How much depends on the capacity of the battery as well as the health. It would appear that 12.32V would put the battery into the 60% charge according to most of the State of Charge charts. State of charge charts are referring to open circuit voltage (without any load on the ...

It very well could be the battery has what is called a surface charge. The battery will have enough power to start the vehicle, but if too much of a load is put onto it, the voltage will drop and not be enough to run the vehicle with or with out a good alternator. The battery will basically be sucking the alternator dry. When this happens, the wipers will ...

If it's similar to the Polo, having gear linkage cables, they could have been knocked out of adjustment, or if disconnected probably were not put back exactly. Check out this YouTube video showing the adjustment procedure.

Sounds like the the parking brake mechanism that pushes against the parking brake pads has seized, probably due to wear/corrosion/brakedust. I would take it apart and apply a very thin amount of high temp anti-seize to the joints. If this is the case you might also feel the brake shudder at certain speeds too because it should be the same as driving around ...

The problem is resolved. I ended up taking it to the dealership, where apparently the fix was to "redo all of the fuses in the engine compartment". I doubt the problem was that I had a fuse in the wrong spot, seeing as I didn't touch the fuses when I changed the battery, and I know for a fact the blower worked the day before changing the battery. ...
