AM new to the site just picked up my 02 plate 3.2 GSI. As soon as i have got it some isses have appeared. I am begining to think its a pup, however i did get it for the right money paid 2700 and its done 50k FSH, 1 owner etc.
Garage have replaced two wheel bearings and the rocker cover gaskets before we picked it up.
Also the car was sold to us "As Taken In" does this mean we have no warranty or come back !!??.
If anyone could shed any light on these points i would be really greatfull.
Are any of them common issues ?
1. The front section of the exhaust has gone on the Flexi Pipe ( Hopefully Garage are sorting that tomorrow)
2. When she is idling the engine isnt silky smooth like it was when we went to view the car, it is as if its not firing correctly on one cylinder, you can feel it lumpy as you sit in it.
3. I dont know if this is normal or not but when i turn the ignition on the "Engine Electronics" warning light comes on until the engine is started then it goes off is this normal ??.
4.When she is idling and you rev her for a split second there is a squeek that sounds like a pulley or belt slipping.
5.Tha garage have serviced for us before we got it, when we viewed it the engine was smooth and silent, however now it seems to be a little tapetty, so i am assuming they have used cheapo oil that isnt getting into the lash asdjusters when its cold.
6. Finally when pulling away in 1st or second there seems to be a dull whining noise that has now appeared.
Many thanks in advance
