I'm trying to diagnose a noise on an '01 GTI VR6. I've attached a link to a sound clip for you to hear. I'm being told that it could be the coilpack, and that this is what misfires sound like on the VR6. It doesn't seem right to me, but I'm not real familiar with the VR6 motor. Sounds more like rod knock to me. What do you think?
Start - Idle (800rpm) - REV to 1500 RPM - Top out around 2000 RPM
The noise stays all the way through the RPM range
