      It won't hurt anything, but you won't be able to turn the heat off lol. The heater core will always have hot coolant going through it.

      I have determined on my car, it is not the engine or cooling...

      The engine eventually gets to temps.. but doesnt ever blow HOT heat. ever. Yes both hoses leaving the core are warm, the leaving hose might be a little cooler showing me the core is taking heat from...

      I do not get it..

      The routes in the dash are not blocked, yet the air flow post core (defrost and feet heat) has deminished air flow. The fresh air vents which are pre-core get fairly good air...

      The 98 turbo diesel should be a computer controlled Direct Injected engine.

      Yes. Mk4 AUTOMATIC TDI starter bolts right to the older 020 (mk1-3) transmissions.

      It could be fuel gel, it could be water in teh fuelfilter that is now frozen.. it could be a fuel pump draining fuel back to the tank.. it could be bad plugs, slow starter.. weak battery.

      We don't...

      Did you use a dial indicator first to mark down where your injection timing was set prior to removing the belt and pump? Or did you seriously just dive in to this head first? lol

      uhhhm, if it did it with two different transmissions..

      Then yes it is likely body related. AKA. Shift linkages.

      If it ran fine 4 days ago, and now won't crank with an audible click.. I assume dead battery.

      Charge battery, or get a vehicle to jump-start. If the car ran fine and shut down fine 4 days ago,...

      Well without knowing where it is timed, we can not give proper advice.

      Get it timed, start there and then see how it does. With no proper time on it, the possibilities are nearly endless lol.

      haha, that mechanic got it running oddly.. enough because he sounds like a real space cadet!

      The pump is entirely mechanical, the only electronics involved is a 12v switch to turn off the diesel...

      If the lines are already back on and torqued, just try and crank it it may fire off. I have seen them not drain the pump back when having the lines off.

      OH for sure, it can, and has been done.. Many times over! There is not much harm to be made from turboing the NA engines. Unless you go over board, but then you could damage a turbo block by doing...

      Just get a full turbo engine and swap it in ;). Or a TD oil pan and manifolds and the likes.

      The IDI's had oil squirters if they were factory turbo engines, but not the NA ones.
