Default Added another one to the fleet...

Not sure what I got myself into but this is turning to a massive project. A red 99.5 GL TDI ALH 5speed popped up on craiglist for $1,000 literally down the road from me. Seller claimed that the harmonic balancer flew off and screwed the timing belt. Seller also claimed that the it had a VNT17 turbo, rocketchip tune, and an frost heater. Also has an EGR delete and I believe it also has nozzles as well.

Went down checked out the car. First glance, seller's claims were accurate, car has a VNT17, frost heater and ect. Interior is completely disgusting. heavy smoker car, dirt and crap all over. Minimal rust aside from the typical MK4 fender rot. Overall straight shell though.

Thought about it for a bit and handed over cash for the title. Seller did warn me about how he knows nothing about the car and got it in a trade. My attitude was I can fix pretty much anything. Well this came back to bite me hard...

Then this ended up in my yard.









Lovely interior.




Then I found this.


In case you can't see it, that's a big crack running down the frost heater.

Pretty much this is what I think happened, owner blew the head gasket. Owner then kept running it and limping along by dumping water into it. Owner then left it out in the cold which promptly killed everything.

So I pulled the head. Cylinder filled with water, cut in the head from the head gasket leaking.







Worst part: block is split in the back. Even more bad news, Pretty sure the VNT17 is junk. Tons of shaft play.

As a side note, this car has tdiclub stickers on it. Wonder which member it belonged to? Car was last titled in CT...

Probably going to end up putting another motor together for it. Less likely I'll just part it out.

Stay tuned.

Normally $1000 isn't bad for a TDI, but this one seems to be a loss. You could sell the manual bits as a complete manual swap and make your money back on it.

That's what I was thinking. I have decided that this car will be resurrected from the dead and will live again. For what I paid, can't complain too much about this car. Fully expecting to dump around $3K into it to get in decent drivable condition.

I edited my original post and added pics and resized the older ones. Took a bunch of time but the result is a lot nicer.

VNT17 is scrap. Shaft is broken clean in half. What a shame.

What kind of a moron did that much damage to it? They shouldn't be allowed to have a car, much less a TDI.

Head is stripped ready to go to Frank. Fingers crossed that there isn't any cracks in it that I can't see. Too bad I don't have a working printer to print the UPS label.

Started to vacuum the interior and realized it was hopeless. So I'm gutting it and cleaning each part instead. Center console was so bad, it required soaking in hot soapy water to get the goo off of it. It was literally like someone was pouring coffee down it....

Wow! This will be quite a resurrection! Interested to see how you make out. Especially with the interior to be honest. Keep us posted! Definitely a shame about the Vnt17

Cleaning the interior sounds like a lot of fun. I would remove the carpet and pressure wash it.

If the seats are fake leather/vinyl/whatever its called and dirty, use fast orange hand cleaner! Put on a pair of nitrile gloves, get yourself a glob of fast orange and scrub away! Then wipe off with a towel when you're all done.

Got another block! Took a few measurements and it checks out pretty good. Thinking it should be good with a hone and drop in a stock set of pistons. Its a later block with the thicker mounting ear too.

Interior is somewhat back together. Ended up taking out the carpet and shampooed it several times, left it in the rain for a few days and then vacuumed it. Came out pretty decent.

Here's the final result:




I also pulled the headliner and found a mouse nest on top of it complete with dead mice(don't worry, I didn't take pictures of that....) Right now main goal is getting the motor together and running.

Also found out that the heater core is busted so now the dash has to come out if I want heat in this car. Man, what a POS this car really is. If it wasn't for me it would have probably been heading for the crusher.

Owner ran this car right into the ground.

Motor is apart. Complete carnage.

Nice gooey lower end. Guessing this thing hasn't seen an oil change in a few years...



Nice pile of metal in the bottom of the pan with a chunk of engine block:



#2 rod got bent from I am guessing water filling the cylinder from the blown head gasket. It bent so far that the piston hit the top of the crank and cracked the piston. It wouldn't even come out of the bore so I didn't bother. Its all scrap anyway.

Crankshaft is toast, journals are scored to holly hell. Basically nothing is usable from this engine.
