    Any engine from the 1,8 TQS B5 > 1,8T B6 will be fine, just use your original ancillaries if going the B5 route.

    Any ideas cause of failure? Was there any warning before the pump failed?

    Have a look through the links, I had the same nightmare with the ever so great and reliable AVJ engine....who said they were bulletproof!!!!


    Also do a search on Oil sludge because thats whats happened to yours, no oil getting to the top of the engine, pump failed and Bang!!!

    Ive heard different storys of other engine wont fit or if they do it wont run right etc etc but there is people who know what they are doing.
    Mind you mine is a Quattro so different ball game I guess!

    Word of warning though, If you are going for an AVJ then be prepared to have you pants down because the breakers know these Fcuka's are rare as foook and take advantage with the price.

    Keep us informed mate and Sorry to hear the bad news. It happened around this time for me aswell.

    I have a 1,8T, still in a 2004 Passat 1,8T Sport, has done 53,000 miles.

    Stuffed in the rear, but have had it running, albeit briefly, as I had to rig up a fuel pump, and a gallon of gas, as the gas tank was split.

    Spoke to a mate of mine who has more knowledge of Engine swaps etc and he said it'll be easier to fit a different engine code as its only FWD so least your options are greater.

    Just make sure if you do go down that route then you have a good mechanic who knows what they are doing.

    Now why did I say auto?

    I meant to say Sport. It's a 5-speed manual, I know the cranks are different, you can't fit the spigot bearing on an auto crank.

    I am selling it, yes.

    I bought it as a breaker, as it has black leather, and full-screen Volkswagen Sat Nav, which someone on here wants.

    The receipt states "VW Passat Sedan 1,8T Highline", whatever that means.

    ^^^ As stated above, in post #6...

    Engine's from VW Passat 1,8T Sport, year is 2004, mileage is 53,000.

    PM me if you're interested, and let me know how much you want left on the engine - i.e manifolds, injectors, coil packs, mounts, alternator / PAS pump / compressor etc.

    Obviously, it'll probably be best to retain your original set-up.
