Re: Engine noise when starting 954 in cold
I seem to find when my Passat has been sitting for a while, most of the oil usually sinks to the sump. When I start the engine, I sometimes get a metal to metal sound before the oil begins to circulate.
The 954RR are renown for their thin engine cases and as a result do sound a little loud when idling. That could be the noise you are hearing (I get worried when I don't hear it) but if its too loud, I would check it out.
