Anyone have a rebuilt/used 1.8t AWD engine?
I'm probably going to pass and just be done with the car. I've got pistons that are hosed and bearings probably are too.
Do I just need a rebuilt head or is there more to it than that? Thanks.
Going to have someone help me with this one. Not expecting good things, but who knows.
Welp, It's the timing belt. Yikes, what are the chances there was no damage. Was heading on 41N when it happened.
Ok, I'll give it a go tomorrow. Thanks for the help.
Lost power, no start=no move.
Lost power to the GTI while driving down 41 today. Was going to get the timing belt done soon. Could that be a symptom of failed timing belt? Ouch.:(
I'm going to have to recommend a Jetta Wagon, only because I love mine. :cool:
Congrats, I've always liked the 1 series. Only modern BMW I would own. Too many DBags at work with 3 Series.
Why does it cost so much? WOW:screwy:
Thanks. I know, parts are super cheap for this job too....
Ok, thanks. I do some maint. on my car, not a lot. I had taken it in and the estimate was almost $500. Seemed kind of high. And this wasn't a dealer.
Anyone replace strut mounts on a MKIV? How difficult we talking here?
I heard the next gen R will get a HP bump up to 260hp. :thumbup:
Thanks for the replies, It's actually a MKV. Don't know too much about them. More familiar with the MKIV. I'm going to go check out the car sometime this week.
So I was checking the carfax on a GTI I'm interested in. Twice within 18 months there is report for 'body electrical wiring repaired' that could be a number of things. Anyone have any clues or...
