:* I have a 1998 T4 2.5 tdi intercooler.
the crankshaft cam has broken while driving and has had the same effect as the timing belt going. KAPUT!
Not Sure what to do, the engine is a rebuilt engine, only done 10k since the rebulid which was done before i bought it. and has now done 160k

im wondering if the new t5 1.9 tdi new engine would fit into my van without to much hassle. i am no mechanic so i have no idea where to start and what is possible.

i dont want to go down the route of another rebulid as im not sure of the reliability of this route. and like the idea of the better economy of the newer engines,

i do understand that if it was possible to put a new/er t5 engine in that there are other parts that would need to be sourced such as gear box. would other parts be needed?

eek

Any help appriciated

... alternativley, what is the cost of a rebuild? is it a job one could do from a manual?

Cheers

Anton

I have contacted the previous owner and they are going to get back to me on the details of who did the rebuild.

im just not filled with confidence about a further rebuild

thanks for your reply
