Asked by May 15, 2015 at 02:12 PM about the 2001 Volkswagen Beetle GLS 1.8T

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i'm not sure if this is something new or its always been there. Sounds like its coming from under the engine cover.

It's normal, it's the secondary coolant pump that runs for a short time after shutdown to aid in cooling.

Thank you, it was my guess.
