Hey guys,

So I decided to jump for a MK5 oil pump and a widened MK3 Steel pan with baffling for my MK4 R. I've replaced many oil pans before so this seemed like a breeze!

I dropped the pan, took out the old oil pump, installed the new one, fabbed up a tranny cover and threw the new pan on. Everything seemed fine until I went to go and start it up.

It turned over and runs just fine but it started with this weird fluttering noise. I'm not getting an oil pressure light or anything but I have been only running it for 10 seconds at a time.

It's not a knock or anything like that but rather just a decently loud flutter.

If anyone's got ideas I'd love to hear them! Thanks guys!

Please post a video. A flutter can sound very different to whom ever.
Did you maybe over or under fill it with oil?

I believe the oil pressure light will only trigger if RPMs are above 1500. So if you've just been idling then it may not be warning you that there is a problem.
