I have the 2005 Jetta 2.5 sedan, 5 speed.... Bought it not running, it jumped time. So we motor swapped it, complete gasket kit, swapped the intake, valve cover and all that. We've checked valves, none are collapsed, I have no loose rocker arms.... We bench tested the injectors, all sprayed perfectly.

I have a MAF/IAT sensor issue, (they are integrated together) replaced them twice plus the one off old motor. Nothing. so my husband's tried to resplice them with the plug, with gold plated connecters, one will work one day and the next they'll switch. We've done all the electrical testing, the voltmeter, ugh..... still haven't figured that out. Runs and drives, actually runs better then it did before.

But we can NOT GET THIS DANG TICK TO GO AWAY. It does it from start up, to shut down, clutch in or out, any RPM any gear, any climate, ALL THE TIME. It seriously sounds like something is seriously wrong and people are always looking crazy when I drive by. I have a video. Please help. Are all these issues tied in together?? You can not tell me that it's just loud injectors, because that's ridiculous! Nobody would ever believe me when I try to sell it. It won't let me upload the video. But it sounds like a diesel which I've read about BUT IT DEF ISNT. This is so annoying and frustrating trying to track down. We've used scopes, screwdrivers, dowels......

I think I recently read a post associated with this question, my friend, I don't know if you can filter the posts in any way, I'm sure you would find a satisfactory answer.

Hello there! I also have an 05.5 MKV 2.5. Mine recently made its second and final timing tooth jump and I finally had to to bloody the knuckles:) You explained rebuilding the cylinder head, as well as a few of the tolerance checks, no mention of bleeding the hydraulic valve lashes. Depending on how long the head was bench bound, and how well you cleaned it, or worst case scenario, removed the lifters with lashes attached and set them on their sides, they could have lost the oil that they retain and that would create a large gap between cam lobe and roller. it would be after the fact too. you can google bleeding hydraulic valve lifters i believe,But then I cannot imagine such an undertaking without at least a Chilton. There is a mention of it in there as well.

Btw, I have alot of aftermarket work done and as part of the top end job, I added 09' injectors as they are almost 11mm longer and have a better delivery. Anyways, point being, even after calibrating them with RossTech VAGCOM she sounds like a dodge 5.9 gen one diesel:D. So much fun to drive though. my APR tuned 2014 1.8 is growing moss...

MAP/MAF solution for me was a catch can. you will be amazed at how much oil gets reintroduced to our intake systems via PCV, crank vent breather etc.
