    I am winging it on the prices. If they are a steal commit and pay before I realize itšŸ˜œ. I will do some research in the next few days and also look to post pictures as well. Taking the Passat apart before it goes to the scrapper. All parts are plus shipping. Ko4 turbo. Genuine, not a knock off...

  6. This sounds horrific, what is it! Video linked

    This is the type of answer I am worried about. I know it is hard to pinpoint sounds but it seems like it is coming from mid block-head gasket height. I cannot think what is there to make that noise. It was a much quieter noise for a few weeks now. Valve cover off all good. Ace belt tensioner...

    You were perfectly clear. Just as my mention of were the sound was coming from. I appreciate you reaching out to be of help but if you are uncomfortable with this conversation or find it to be laborious, just do not respond.

    It really does sound lower down and from the driverā€™s side. I am going to listen again tonight. Clutch in and out, in gear and out. I am thinking it is the input shaft noise I have had since ditching the dual mass for a light weight flywheel. It certainly sounds like a heavier part than the pcv...

    I have had a noise from the engine for a bit now. Thought it was the accessory belt tensioner and I havenā€™t been on a hurry to fix it. The noise has gotten a lot louder lately. During this photo I could tell the noise seems to be coming from the middle or slightly forward of the middle from...
  10. Timing belt broke. Need advice.

    B5 Garage
    Hope to find a head at the junk yard this week. That crank pulley looks good. Looks like two pins. That plus what's left of the keyway makes me confident. Let's see if I can keep it under $400.
  11. FS/parting out: 2000 B5 sedan 1.8T 5spd

    Parts For Sale
    I'm interested in the cylinder head if the previous looker didn't take it. This could convince to fix my car instead of parting it. You can call or text 561 4yh5g9 0jl8f1cc8
  12. Timing belt broke. Need advice.

    B5 Garage
    "should not be hard to do with your level of experience" <- thats funny! I'm going to add up what I should be able to get out of the performance parts. That might convince me to part it. My friend with the Mini, we were talking in 5k range. Now he says he is going to list it for 8k and try to...
  13. Timing belt broke. Need advice.

    B5 Garage
    Thanks for the perspective Captian. Here is my budget so far: Head rebuild kit including gaskets $300 Timing kit $175 Machine shop around $250 Stuff I saw taking it apart $200 I think it will be under a grand. Would I buy this car for a grand? Knowing it's history intimently, yes. Do I just want...
  14. Timing belt broke. Need advice.

    2000 wagon 1.8t 5spd. 239k. I didn't actually break. The crank pulley bolt backed out and then it jumped timing. Pistons have slight dents in them. Thats no problem. I will just smooth off the burs. Head needs rebuilding of course. Need to replace the timing pulley as the key was sheared. My...
  15. Snub mount too low after taking lock carrier off

    B5 Garage
    ^^^This all makes sense but should I be worried about why the lock carrier was so low after the work was done?
