VE SERIES 2 MY11 SSV A6 in IVY GREEN
Hi guys i just picked up a 05 sv6 with 80k on the clock and have noticed a few noises that i'm worried about. The fist one is coming from the intake manifold/injector area and kind of sounds like noisy injectors, it actually sounds like a diesel at idle.

The second sound happens if i'm sitting still in park and i give the throttle a quick short blurt, this makes a loud tinny sound like the throttle body opening with a metal on metal sound. Any help would be great. Cheers

I have heard people talk of loose heat shields on the exhaust manifolds making a noise.

Haven't had the problem on mine, but it might be worth checking.

Cheers,
Gary

the second noise your talking about, is that heard after you release the throttle after a quick rev, if so thats the variable intake opening and closing, nothing to worry about

Yep that's the one!! So it is not the throttle body but the variable intake? Where is that located?

Does anyone else know if the injectors are meant to make a slight ticking noise??

the variable intake, is just basicly flaps inside the intake manifold, that increase/decrease the lenght of the manifold. the noise your hearing is the flaps reseating into there normal postion
