Might be because this is an abused car.
The 1.5 TDI is very quiet, especially once you're on the move. Must be a well abused car.

Have you had the MFMA (the injector adaptation that reveals any faulty injectors) undertaken on your engine. The tractor like noise vanished after the adaptation was applied. It still sounds like a diesel, of course, especially when outside, but is an huge order of magnitude quieter than before, and the tractor like sound has all but vanished.

After all the 4 injectors were replaced, there is very less tractor like noise. Above that, engine has become a lot more responsive then before.

I own a 2010 Vento 1.6 TDI, have done about 35k Kms. Recently I am hearing liquid splashing sound from the right rear end. Couldn't locate any water bottles under the seat. Is it diesel splashing? I have started to hear it after I went over a speed hump at a higher speed than desired because I did not see it. What is it? Can anybody throw some light on it? Can do without the additional sound effect!

My Vento's AC stopped working today morning. Thought its humid and kept decreasing the temperature in the morning only to discover its not cooling !

Had to endure fogging of windows driving in heavy rain in the evening :(

It was lying at my cousin's place there. The service station guys from VW Chennai (Sundaram motors) came and had a look.

Awaiting repairs tomorrow.
Update : The car is back!

The service centre people at Sundaram Motors made a thorough inspection and finally identified the problem as a blocked fuel pump.

It was changed and the cost was Rs.5500, which was covered by the extended warranty.

Hey Guys,

I don't know if its an issue with my car or not. I experienced these 2 things in last winters as well and again have come up in these winters. These 2 things are only winter specific.

By the way my car just completed 4 Years and is around 61K Kms.

One big cause for these issues is I think my daily running is very less. My office is about 3 Kms from my home so probably most of the times during weekdays the engine even does not warm up properly.

1) Longer first crank of the day: During winters my car needs a longer first crank. This was last year as well when I had just changed the battery a couple of months back.

2) Very tractor like engine noise for the first few Kms. Also perceivably sluggish engine response for the first few KMs. It feels that the turbo takes time to spool up and there is huge turbo lag. For example the car just wants to die lets say on a speed breaker.

All these things crop up only in winters and as soon the weather becomes warmer things go back to normal.

Any pointers on what can I do to get around these things? or can it be a possible issue that I should get checked?

Regards
Rachit

My suspicion is water in one of the doors. The vehicle was caught in a downpour yesterday. I will have a look in the AM to see if there are any drain holes for the doors. Has a similar thing happened to anyone?

All the doors along with the rubber beading will have small holes for channelling the water out. Check if holes are open or clogged.

Thanks. I just tugged at the beading and water started to flow out. Have to wait and see if the problem recurs.

Just check if the accumulated water has resulted in rust, as that portion of the door is the first to start rusting. If you see any sign of rust, get it cleaned and painted fast.

Small query
1. With the engine off and the windows open, is it normal to hear the gears engaging?( while changing gears with the clutch pedal depressed). Can someone confirm it?
2. What is the oil consumption after 1st service?

Turbohead,
1. Yes you do hear the sound.
2. Oil consumption? It was never below the danger limit and ideally last till second service where they completely change oil.

Depends on driving style and kilometers covered. Mostly after first service, engine oil easily lasts for 15,000 Kms without refills.

Before first service we filled about 600ml (at the service centre). After first service we filled more than 700ml (on our own).
What are the factors that can cause oil consumption? Lugging the engine? I happened to learn driving in this car (after the course from the 'driving school') ( after first service) and stalled the car approximately 40 times. Is that a factor?
