Where i can locate a good engine for an A4 2.5 TDi Quattro 180 BHP (AKE)
Can anyone help with the location of a good Audi 2.5 Tdi AKE engine.. i've spoken to Sanburn and theyre fully out of stock and reckon that this is not an easy piece of kit to locate..
Any suggestions would be most welcome...
The reasons for my need is as follows from a separate thread:
The cam under cylinder 4 is well worn and as such the valve is not opening properly (Pressure blowing the wrong way).
The cam under cylinder 2 is also very well worn and has caused the rockers to jump out of position and snap two followers. (like you diagonosed Adam)
There's also a hairline crack around one of the injectors..
All in all the prices i';m getting for Cams / followers and hydrolic's is around the £1,200 mark without labour ...
The car's going in for a 2nd opinion tomorrow but, I've got tears in my ears..
