Hi.

Having some issues with my MK5 golf GTi.

Below are 2 links of videos I have filmed of the knock/rattle noise my engine is making at idle I am hoping to get some insight as to what it could be as I'm very worried.

Thanks

Hello,

This sounds like the timing belt is about to fail. I would remove the front cover to confirm the issue. On the low oil pressure that should be its own post so please start a new thread for that. Here are the instructions in the diagrams below to show you how to do the timing belt.

Can you please upload the video to our site? You can upload it here with your response. Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.
