    That's easy! Just walk into your friendly local VW dealer and give them your VIN. You'll have a nice new engine in couple of days. For an AEB, it'll be somewhere upwards of six grand.

    Not the engine, price, or answer you were looking for? Then provide a few more details.

    It is a 1999 Passat 1.8t AEB Auto Transmission.
    A rod snapped putting 3 holes in the block and breaking the oil pump.
    Sorry for my lack of detail Im doing this at work. If I am missing anything else please inform me!

    There is a guy on ebay that sells rebuilt motors, otherwise you won't really find people with fresh rebuilt motors laying around, its either used or new from the dealer or find a block and start building.

    Thanks for the replies. I did see the one guy on ebay and I think I will most likely go with that. If you happen to find anything else that might interest me please PM me. Once again Thank you!

    Go to a local machine shop and have them rebuilt it for you. This is not the cheapest option. Getting a used one is. But a new one will put you in the hole, a deep hole.

    Mine blew and I replaced it with an Audi engine for $1200 and it only had 52k on it. Not sure of B5 engines.....AWM had one year where it was made for both Audi and VW....but here's the kicker.....LONG BLOCK NUMBERS WERE DIFFERENT.....SHORT BLOCK NUMBERS MATCHED. If you're going to look to see if you can swap in an engine, break the engine apart and look at short block and head numbers....don't look for matching long block numbers.

    Wonder why the long block was different, also I believe you could use an AMB, they share the same 06A block and head.

    honestly, i had no clue why....I even verified it with VW parts dept and the long block has a crazy different number, but then i asked him the short/head numbers independently and they matched
