    Default My 99.5 MkIV engine is clicking loudly!! Link with Video of my car making sound pleas

    I went to my buddies house a street over to show him the new car I bought, I did a mediocre burnout on the street behind him, after about hanging out for 30 mins I go to start it and I hear this https://youtu.be/-4pVI5hxDcA that is my car in the video, the engine is shaky as well, I heard it might be timing chain. please help narrow it down!!!!

    Sounds like you shouldn't of done a burn out before checking the car over, how many miles are on it and what's he maintenance history?

    Spun bearing. Look for metal flakes when you dump the oil.

    That ain't no spun bearing, that sounds like valve-train. Spun bearing, you'd
    get knock, not that chattering.

    It could be something else, but is sounds like a top end issue.

    Shew good thing here's no major accidents on it, the maintenance history has got to be perfect

    So let's be serious now, sounds like your going to have to check the timing and your head, are you able to do your own service?
