      Yeah. Its not got like 10g wiring haha. Probably 14g. Ive just had one of these splitter plugs/usb plugs probably take more than its amperage rating and not blow the fuse.. but melt its housing and...

      It revved up to a high RPM and then it shut itself off? You didn't turn it off with the key?

      Oh dear. Likely means it lost fueling and died. I would also suggest turning the engine further to make...

      Going by 1.6D, 1.6 or whatever is stamped on the back for the earlier 1.6 stuff is sometimes not definitive.

      Also what you posted for a block code, is actually a date code for its cast. MAy 20th...

      The pictures are of poor quality, and not showing a few key areas.

      Take one of the fuel line end of the pump. We need to see what that looks like.

      Just because it is still producing boost does not mean the intake isn't clogged.

      An oil leak would not cause you to have less power. Unless it was out of oil, and the engine was seizing.

      $150?!

      DAMN YOU. LOL

      Yes, using the stock clutch bolted to your 1.6D the stock transmission will bolt to this engine without issue. I have done it personally, twice in two different cars. Also,...

      There is no quick fix for the aging fuel system on a Bosch VE diesel engine.

      The pump, if leaking fuel needs to be removed and at the very least re-sealed. It is not a terribly extreme job, but it...

      Your 1.6 NA pump will run the engine just fine if you add a turbo to it. Clearly you understand how the aspect of it works, most people add a turbo and MPG goes down.. Because the pedal is pushed...
