Advice needed on 2.0Tdi engine
Hi guy i have just sold my audi S3 8L
I have put a deposit down on an Audi A3 2.0Tdi S-line in red 19,500 miles and got it for £14,900.
This is my problem, my mates work at Audi and are mechanics there. I told them that I want to buy this car and if they can look at it for me. But all i get of them is stay clear from the 2.0tdi engines as they are crap. They say they always work on them engines and the main faults are the tandem pump going and mixing the oil with the diesel, cylinder heads leaking water, turbos going + may others. they say they get most problem 30,000-40,000 miles
Surley the engines cant be that bad?
What problems have you guys/girls had?
I am going to pick this car up on saturday so need advice asap guys. Thanks
