Post Need an engine 1.9 TDI...

At @ 123K miles the other day my 96 Passat TDI throws a #3 rod through the block....who knows why as I am meticulous with the vehicle...

In any event I would like to drop a new/used 1.9 in the grey 4dr.

Any input/leads on used TDI engines would be greatly appreciated as the car (other then the engine) has alot of life left in her.

Many thanks!

Mike

L&T Enterprizes in Allentown had an A4 sitting there for sale about 2 months ago.

.....and if you want to save $$$ by doing more work swapping engine components from your current engine you could just get a used block. There's a good chance "block" means you'll get the entire "short block" including pistons, crank, etc. There there is one in NY:

Thumbs up

Andrew/Tom-

Thanks for the input/legwork, they sure aren't giving them away, although Oneonta, NY might be the best bet, as I have family in that neighborhood.

Will keep looking for a good TDI engine in the meantime.

Many thanks,

Mike

When someone dies young I always like to think that they smoked, were overweight, etc. SO tell me did you ever chip the passat? was it ever chipped, if yes I'd feel a lot better.

Car was never chipped and not hot-rodded (not that that's an option with a TDI...) Just went belly up - 3rd cyl rod cracked front block, exited the rear, what a surprise.

Anyone have any dealings with Apex Auto parts @ Tulsa, OK;

Black's Auto Salvage in Brusly, La

or

A & A Auto Center in Orlando....might be on to some engines there....but they don't give them away...

Thanks,

Mike

dupp-
Sorry for your troubles. I'm just really curious as to how that could happen. Did you ever experience a broken TB? What type of oil and what change interval? That is way too young. Thanks for any additional info.

TDITOM , the right Bruce (redtdi966) ?? miles , root cause is this a question for redtdi966 or "dupp".

TDI engines take a beating with the high compression. Even if you buy new it always could of been the "friday" or "gotta get it done before lunch" or " freak my boss, I'll show him" engine at the VW assemby plant...
