Oil pump fail is it really that common!
Hi all! Regarding 2.0 tdi oil pump fails! How many people have actually had this issue? Ive read all the stuff on the Internet which scared the hell out of me! Been worried about it! So I went to see a very good friend today who is the director of Ron turnbull vw audi seat skoda garage in Middlesbrough! ( I can highly recommend this garage if you need a good Indy and that's not just coz of the friendship thing these guys know their stuff) I asked him about the problem and asked if he would have a look at mine! His reaction was not what I was expecting! He told me that from 2005 until 2013 he has at the very most done 15 cars with either the chain drive failure or later gear driven balancer shaft hex bar issue! Due to the amount of customers he has he thinks that this is not even an issue! He told me not to worrie about it and said he didn't want to take money of me for this to be done! He would not say the same to you if you wanted the work done as I said he is a friend! So how many 2.0 owners have actually had this happen to them?? 15 cars in 9 years seems to me to be insignificant number in the scheme of things!
