    Unhappy HELP - Engine/Transmission Sound

    Hi Folks,


    Before i bought my car (1 week ago). I made sure the garage fitted a new clutch as it was making a funny sound when changing gears.


    I was told this was done and the car felt great driving away from the garage. Then i started noticing something wasn't right.


    The car seems to pull strong until about 70-80mph when it just runs out of steam. When cruising along at 40-50mph when i touch the accelerator a little but just to maintain speed i am welcomed with a whirring grinding noise.


    Now i was told i have a 1 month warranty on mechanics from the garage i bought the car from. I am looking to you guys to point me in the right direction of what it could be and where i stand with the garage. I have already been told of one mechanic that it could be the flywheel as this may not have been replaced with the clutch.


    I just cant under stand why the car runs out of steam but i dont feel anything slipping.


    Car is a 56 plate B7 Avant 2.0 TFSI Special Edition.


    Cheers for any pointers as i am royally crapping it that i may have bought a fooked car....

    Someone with more Knowledge will be along soon. But i always assumed you should change the dual mass flywheel at the same time. I may be wrong. But due to the cost of one maybe they dodged doing it. Hope you get it sorted mate

    Rizzini7 is correct, when changing a clutch you should change the Dual Mass Flywheel.

    I suspected this. Would this cause the drop in power making it hard to pass 80mph?

    My thoughts are that the DMF and your specific problen are two separate issues.
