Volkswagen Jetta Wolfsburg Edition: My 2001 1.8t squeals right

This answer was rated:

My 2001 1.8t squeals right after/during start up sometimes. It is a loud squelch/squeal and is bothersome. Any thoughts?

chris : The sound you are hearing is the starter sticking engaged after start up. It probably doesn't do it every time but the only way to fix it is to replace the starter
