I recently had mechanics add a timing belt kit that included water pump, coolant flange, tensioner, thermostat, and belts. I've only driven it twice since Sunday and less then 10 miles. First day was okay but now it sounds like a rattling noise or clinking as I idle the car and gets louder as i push on pedal. The noise goes away when I turn wheel.
My car shakes slight as I start to pull at 80mph at low Rpms

Hello, I had recently purchased a 2003 golf gti with a 1.8 turbo 4 cylinder engine. The vehicle has 139,000 miles on it. Before purchasing, I had a mechanic come out and look at the vehicle for a pre-purchase inspection, and ran the code P0303 (cylinder 3 misfire) which without test driving, told me that is what caused the shift shudder I noticed when I had test driven it a previous day. He told me the coil packs were in good condition by looking at the top of them, and told me if I replace the spark plugs, the issue should go away. I feel it is important to mention that he had also run codes on the transmission and nothing came up. Taking it home, this morning I had replaced the spark plugs and driven it for about an hour both regularly and aggressively to test it. The problem is still there, and I was really hoping that there is a solution to this problem, because everything else on the car is beautiful, while being my dream car, I just want it to work as well as I know it can. I appreciate any help offered in resolving this issue, thank you very much!
My headlight switch has only two positions; one for "on" and one for "off". However, I have fog lights on the car which are supposed to be activated by pulling out the headlight switch. My switch does not pull out in either of the aforementioned position,s nor does it turn to any other position. Do I have to purchase a more complex headlight switch? If so, why are there fog lights if they cannot be activated with the switch already installed in the dashboard?
my 1.8L gti is overheating took it to the shop they told me it was because my radiator hoses were spongy from oil causing my engine to overheat has anyone heard of this or had anything like this happen to them also just replaced heads and gaskets so don't see how this could be possible any ideas?

I fried my fan control module along with the plugs that go to it. I know what happened, and already have a new fcm, I just can't find new/used pig tails to fix the wiring. Have some ideas where to look? Tried all the junk yards around me I can think of, and dealers/part stores can't get them anymore
Feels like hot air is always coming through vents. Just spent 1300 at the dealer for emissions work. Of course, they say it's not under warranty. Any thoughts?
I have about 110K miles on the vehicle and I can't get the check engine light to go off!
When I idle up or rev the engine at all I lose all interior g
acuges accessories power to the windows air blower all interior lighting and not sure what else I lose but when I let it idle back down it all comes back. So anytime I take off I lose all electrical operation of pretty much everything. This started this morning driving down the highway all of the sudden my stereo quit working then I realized I lost gauges and all. Soon as I stop it all comes back. Or I can just coast in neutral and it all comes back as well. Guess I'm going to get back out and try and figure this out.
When starting engine it doesn't click over
