Hi, I have a VW Polo GTI 1.8T 2008 plate - 51K

This year in January it had a major service then in August I had a lube service (loads of miles for work recently), cam belt and water pump fitted. The VW main dealer said there were no advisory notes for the vehicle. ALL GOOD

Then last week the engine would not turn over until the 4th time of trying, when it did start there was a weird double woosh or swoosh sound which goes away straight away. It now always starts first time but the woosh or swoosh sound is always there and I and slightly worried as I have always kept it up to scratch with servcing and always through a main dealer

Do you

CAN'T NARROW IT DOWN TO AN AREA. WITH A HELPER

I KINDA DON'T KNOW WHETHER THIS IS GAS OR DIESEL----ARE YOUR SPARK PLUGS TIGHT?

DOES THE SOUND GO AWAY. OR DOES THE ENGINE RUNNING JUST DISGUISE IT?
