I have a 2009 Jetta Sportwagen with a 2.5L engine. Since late this spring, the engine has been rattling (?), and I can't figure out why.


The noise is intermittent, and I can't figure out any pattern to when it occurs. I hear it when the engine is just started and when the engine has been running awhile; when the temperature outside is cold or warm; when the AC is running or off.

I've seen a lot online about Jetta noises caused by a stretched timing chain, but this particular rattle sounds different.

Any ideas would be appreciated!
