Under light throttle, there is light lifter clatter. Is this normal for the VR6? I hate to think I have a motor defect (bad lifters or something).
(Its in an 04 Touareg)...

Any techs here?

Re: Lifter noise normal? (spinnetti)

Nothing to worry about. Will be more noticeable when the engine is cold.
Now if it is more like a loud knock or tick, take it in for the tech to look at. This will at least show that you are concerned, and if you have a problem in the future with the engine related to this noise, you can reference your service visit regarding the engine ticking...
Get VW on your side early, otherwise the service center will most likely try to blame it on you.

Re: Lifter noise normal? (kn7671)

on cold starts on my 2.8 24V the evap solenoid goes crazy. That might be what you are hearing. If you start to hear the noise, put your finger on the evap solenoid, it should be just in front of the coolant reservoir. If it is clicking, you have most likely found your culprit.
