2006 Volkswagen GTI Repair Question
Why are my radiator cooling fans running so loud?
Need to return to Dealer have them look over their work se if that has effected fans
I am trying to gather info before I go back seeing as the noise did not start until I got it back from my dealership.
Without physicaly see vehicle and not knowing what they repaird no clue
They replaced the flap motor in the intake, and checked my turbo because it is throwing my check engine light and needs a couple split hoses replaced, the moment they kinda put a 'band aid' on one of the hoses until the part comes in is when the fan began making the noise, when asked about the noise they told me that because the turbo is now actually working because of the hose they taped up, that it is causing the engine to run hotter and that is why the fan is louder and it is now working correctly. yeah... right.
Well there is a little logic inwhat they say if engine runs hotter fan speed increases. Sure it is cooling fan and not Turbo your hearing?
Well hey Docfixit, so I suppose my hearing and intuition was right that when they fixed my car there is a temperature sensor that the fan uses in the intake (looking at the motor, on the right hand side) that they forgot to plug in so it was causing my fans to run in a type of safe mode so yeah, thanks for nothing.
