Hi there. Have placed a few other posts about similar matters however i thought i had sorted them out!
Spoke to just017 about a stuttering sound coming from the engine when the car first started and when it was stationary in P (as its a DSG) and someone mentioned that it could be the alternator tensioner. I had this replaced today and the noise has virtually gone away but earlier i started it from cold and it stuttered for 3-4 secs and then went! Does anyone know whats wrong if there is anything wrong? A friend of mine said is could be the flywheel as this is common with DSG's but he said it not worth changing as he has changed it before and the noise dint really go away ... Any info would be great as im lost on the matter.
Also .. whenever i started the car the fan to the right of the engine always came on and kept switching on and off even when the car was stone cold! Again speaking to some peeps on this site they mentioned it was probably the thermostat sensor. This was replaced today and the fan doesnt constantly switch on and off , but it did come on the first time the car was switched on from cold but it dint really come on after that. When the car was warm and parked up it fan came on a couple of times then went off. Just so everyone knows the air con is working perfectly fine so if anyone can help me that would be brilliant! cheers
