Thanks for that - will get looking for a new starter!
What sort of money ya talking if head gasket gone ??
my heads cracked where the glow plugs come out and mines got the C part number. ;(
so what happens if the crack is between the glow plug holes in the head ?
New head needed I'd say, you'll lose compression/burn oil
Update on mine regarding hot start - had it remapped with hot start fix and all has been good since (same starter & battery that was advised to be replaced - they don't)
cool who mapped it ?
03G 103 308 C PART NUMBER ON HEAD
Rob at W8 Performance :thumbsup: (Shark map)
BKD 140 mapped to approx 180bhp 400nm torque, EGR map out & hot start fix (fuelling adjusted on start-up when warm/hot afaik)
Do the 170 tdi's suffer from cracking heads
does this happen after the cars been mapped or if its not happened after 97,000miles am safe?
a head can crack at any time it wants to
Mine is 03G 103 308 P? 55 plate done 101607, not had it long though
I think the 'P' will be a 'B'. You may have misread it ! Mine is an 05 plate but 06 MY like yours and mine is a 'B'
Your right, had to scrape some dirt away
Right my brothers head has cracked between all the valves, where have people got a new head from and how much? Any problems since?
After reading this I've gone out in the rain to check mine...
Mine is a 55 plate... but has a C head.... does this possibly mean the head has been replaced at some point?
Not necessarily but you should be ok anyway !
Brought a 53 plate 2.0 TDI and the part appears to have been replaced:03G 103 308 C although I have the warm start issue which is becoming annoying.
Just got round to checking mine. Appears to end in an A and has done 120k with no problems.
Has anybody any experience of them suddenly going at higher mileages? Or at 11years and 120k miles is it at the point where it would have cracked if it was going to?
