    Thread: Secondary air pump or something else

    1. 09-16-2019 09:16 AM #1
      we had the motor replaced in Wifes 2010 vw eos.

      Since we got it back it makes a sound when it’s a cold start. The shop said it’s the secondary air pump and unrelated to the new motor. I’m not convinced since it didn’t make this noise with old motor.

      Can you take a look at the video and let me know your thoughts please?

      Here’s the link to the video on my YouTube acct.

      Sounds like the whistling is the 2nd airpump. But Also sounds like it has a bad exaust leak. Run the 2nd airpump with vagcom if you get the same sound you got your answer

      And does it stop making that noise when it warms up?

      Yes, it goes away after the car is warmed up
