answer for me these questions 3 (Tractor noise when starts and vcds error)
evenin guys and gals, i hope were all well and your cars aren't miss behaving too much
my car has been on long life service for 100k miles and since i got the car a few months ago ive cleaned out the sump, pickup and cam cover so im a bit happier now that it isnt getting starved of oil anymore.
is there a way in vcds to check the oil pressure? and if so what should it read?
the tractor noise when it starts only lasts about a second and as far as I'm aware was caused by the engine getting starved of oil a bit. but what I'm wondering is what is it that's actually making the tractor noise? a particular bearing? and is it fixable?
finally i did a vcds scan today and it came up with a fault i had previously which is
Address 01: Engine Labels: None
Part No: 8N0 906 018 J
Component: 1.8L R4/5VT 0004
Shop #: WSC 01236
1 Fault Found:
17704 - Error in Mapped Cooling System (check Temp-Sensor and Thermostat)
P1296 - 35-10 - - - Intermittent
Readiness: 0000 0000
i changed the temp sensor (059 919 501A - the green one) and cleared the codes after. i'm guessing it will be the thermostat which i can imagine is a nightmare to replace
