Hi, I've got a whistling noise coming from my engine,2006 gti. Anyone else had this and any idea what it is?

Check your Intercooler boost pipes, especially the lowers as they get loose with time and the air escaping plays a great tune.

Thanks mate, garage said it might be the gearbox but I wasn't happy with that so I just picked it up. Need to take it to a specialist.

Gear box is usually more of a whine than whistle but good to get it checked. Have you checked the simple things already mate?

Also yesterday it came up on the dash, STOP check coolant level.

There may be a leak from the coolant, easy to check.

Intercooler pipes to check would be the lower ones clipped onto the hard plastic intercooler pipes, they usually fail from that connection, grab a torch and look through the engine.

Below is a pic of a failed one, the wee metal studs wear off and eventually and the hose will detach itself and you will go into limp mode, the whistle could be from one side of a hose starting to fail.

They are really easy to fix with a new hose and horseshoe clip if the old one has stretched.
