  5. Hey Guys, Did a search but didnt find anything (porbs as im useless) My passat is a 2003 ALT engine code 1.8 20v and lately ive had a huge lack of power and throttle response, also can hear what sounds like a vaccum leak coming from under the engine Cover. Upon inspection I found what I think is the idle stabiliser or some form of gadget on top of the rocker cover with air pipes/vacuum lines connecting to it. This is broken at the bulk head end and blocked off! is this an expensive part what is it? Anyone had the same problem? Solutions and parts to replace.... Just wondered what this part is and whats its job and also is it a main dealer only part! Car is really lacking power and idle is terrible so assuming this may be the problem! Thanks any help much much appreciated!!!
  6. LoL! wish all i had to do was a fmic! actually last one i fitted took ages and to be honest id prefer engine swaps rather than that task again lol!
  7. Thanks to both you guys very very useful info and a huge weight off my shoulders! Hopefully try and find a reasonably priced block and head now! HINT HINT! LoL!
  8. I thought it was clear my apologies..... Yes replaced entire unit as car was ran with a hole in the sump and no oil its seized so i am taking no risks and replacing the entire engine! all ancillaries are fine so ideally only need BLOCK & HEAD! Just want to know if it has to be a 4wd 1.8t engine and fly by wire obviously etc! ARY are very costly im looking for a alternative couple engines to scour yards and ebay for! lol thanks guys!
  9. Hey guys, Just bought a 2003 audi a3 1.8 t quattro with a blow engine, need to replace it and wondered what engine codes are compatible! Currently has an ARY what others can I go for? Any help VERY VERY much appreciated! Thanks
