Gurgling sound from rear of drivers side
Posted 17 August 2005 - 02:47 PM
To describe the sound further its like a hamster water bottle constantly emptying, glug , glug , glug about 2-3 seconds in between each glug.
Does anyone know what this might be ?

No but I do get that as well after a hard drive.
Its definetely liquid of some sort and only rear of drivers side. I mainly get the metal contracting noise around the bonnet and wheel areas.

I wondered if it was fuel related just didn't want to assume.
What's it doing ?, letting air in to replace the fuel thats been eaten ?

It nearly sounds as if it's stomach is rumbling, maybe after a good blast it gets a bit hungry for more fuel /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

sounds like mine, when the tank is more full and in warmer weather. Didn't get it on my mkiv though.
Be intrested to know if other have it too or if some cars are exempt from this problem, maybe ours are just more hungry /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

A fuel filling sort-of-related quezzie:
Does anyone else have a problem getting their petrol pump nozzle into the neck of the GTI's fuel filler? The ribbed rubber keeps getting in the way....Any known techniques? Talk about protection!!
I have to force entry every time! I'm waiting for some other motorist to report me for indecent interference and get me arrested!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/sekret.gif

I have experienced this but only when streching it across the car becasue I have parked at a pump on the wrong side. But at least it stops the dirty diesel pumps from penetration , I don't want any FTD's.

I have problems getting full penetration even when close. (Am I leaving myself open for some very 'naughty' comments here!!!)....But my language is entirely relevant Mister Moderator!
