Re: very fast tapping sound (pturner67)

I know exactly what your talking about, i have the same exact problem with my 2005.5 GLI sounds like its coming from the right side of the engine(when you are in the car). If you rev the car in neutral the tapping speeds up until you cant hear it or it stops and then when you back off the thottle and the car is at full idle you dont hear it for about 10 seconds then it start tapping slowly and increses to that annoying tap you hear. And like you said, sometime you hear it sometime you dont. I have no idea what it is, i tried changing my oil weigh and that didnt help. It almost sounds like cams or crankshaft or something in the engine rattling except there is no loss in power or performance. i've never been able to figure it out.
