Sounds, Smells and Lights on your VW

These are often issues that you may notice during normal operation of your VW, but tracking them down may be a little more challenging.

  • Smells

Smells often indicate your car is burning, or leaking something.  This is generally something like Oil or Engine Coolant.  This will drip down on exhaust pipes or other hot engine parts and be burned.

  • Sounds

Sounds can be engine noises, suspension creaks or even brake squeaks.  These are not issues your should ignore  as they could have long term consequences if not taken care of.  These can be things like work bushings, brake pads, or a worn component in your engine, which is in need of replacement.

  • Lights

Engine lights, Brake lights, ABS lights, TPMS lights, the list goes on and on.  Lights on your dash could range from a very small issue, to a emissions concern that has no impact on your vehicle performance, to a major issue that needs to be addressed right away.  When you bring your VW to us, our job is diagnose your vehicle and offer the best solution for your vehicle.


Trust in your VW repair shop is a massively important factor to most people.  You are not a car expert,  and knowing that the shop who is working on your car has your best interest in mind is a huge weight lifted off you.  For this reason one of the DAP Repair owners has been making helpful and insight VW related videos for many years now.  He shares his expertise and experience through hundreds of YouTube videos, which you can find HERE.  Our goal is to offer as much transparency through your vehicle repair process!
