    My engine has finally given up after oil pump failure. It is an APT engine. Question is can i buy one from say a Passat as long as its code APT. Is there anything else i should be aware of ?.

    Thank all.

    Yep the passat engine will swap in no problems.

    Change the oil pump on the replacement engine ;)

    You always seem to come up trumps... Cheers.:applaus:

    Was going to do that and a new clutch. Anything else easy with the engine out of the way?
