I have a 2005 VW Golf, automatic. Today after I parked the car a very loud accelerating sound came out of the engine, it sounded like I had pressed the pedal all the way down but I had not, I cannot remember if I was in park or drive but my feet was not in the accelerating pedal.

My car starts and drives fine, no more noise but I am wondering if I need to do something about this. Any idea what it might be?

Thanks :)

    Is this a TDI engine? – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Nov 19 '14 at 2:43

    So, you're saying it sounds like the engine is revving? Do you see the needle of the tachometer moving too? (that's the guage showing rpm's of the engine, in thousands.) – Lynn Crumbling Nov 19 '14 at 14:22
