Just bought a V6
« on: April 25, 2012, 08:25:03 PM »
Mk2 51 with 86K miles on the clock - bodywork is mint, full ghia spec with leather. Just had a new clutch and timing belt tensioner. Bought as a non runner for £775 :)

Picking it up on Saturday but I suspect (and hope) it'll be running within 10 mins - vagcomd it and got maf shot, throttle body not calibrated and CPS sensor fubared... hopefully the cause of the non starting. Wish me luck :)

Well she's back - first impressions are good, all faults relate to the electronic throttle body assembly which is the original but having had a little measure the voltages dont stack up - rain stopped play but will be looking at the wiring loom on Monday. Wish me luck :)

Now now! :P

I LOVE petrol cars, they are so much more refined then diesel - even the latest generations dervs still have a long way to go when it comes to smoothness and running noise. However the points very valid, I doubt I'll get it above 30mpg which is a long way away from the diesel! Still we'll see, it'll be fun doing it up at least :)

Well it IS fixed :) Ha!

Its been a non runner for almost 2 years and been to four separate garages (with a cost of £1800) and nobody had resolved it. Took me 1 hour of wire checking and I found the problem, spliced in the new wiring calibrated the TB and it started up with no errors. Took it around the block and its responsive and driving well - damn its quick! So anyone wanna buy a V6? ;)

lol! It needs taxing and insuring first... fortunately the back road is a private road so its ok but its only 400yards and I'm desperate to fully test it now!

Still got a few little things to sort:

Heat shield banging in the middle,
Rear exhaust is well on the way out
Rear screen wash pipes adrift in the passenger foot-well
2 rear parking sensors are U/S
Tow-bar's been half fitted! No electrics just the hitch, not sure if to keep or remove tbh.
Coolant pipe split up front
Pollen filters not been done
A/C's weak - condenser replacement needed I think
General service

Nothing a good weekends work won't cure and it's all cheap stuff - well apart from the condenser but you know me, it'll have to be perfect before I list it!

Welcome to the smooth v6 engine club.  The rest of you are just jealous!!

I love the VW V6 engine.  Sometimes I have to check the rev counter to make sure its still running.

Oh, and I get 24mpg around town all day long and got 28mpg fully loaded along with a large roof box going to France and back last year.  Not too bad!! 

Little tip though, always keep a spare coil pack in the boot. 

I thought you were after a 4motion?

Late v6 4motion for sale on eBay.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2005-Volkswagen-Sharan-2-8-Carat-4Motion-7-Seater-6-Speed-Manual-Leather-Suede-/261024823440?pt=Automobiles_UK&hash=item3cc64ab890#ht_1509wt_984

Very unusual to see an 05 plate.  No xenons though, I know you like your xenons.

Seems to be a realistic price as well with only 58k on the clock!

4motion always come with ESP. 

Now I like the sound of retrofitting xenons.  Hassle of levelling system and headlight washers always put me off.

Ahh well thats handy ;)

That bits actually the easy bit! Levelling is only two sensors, one on each ARB - the levelling itself is all handled by the controller inside the lamp. Headlamp wash, again an easy retro - its a requirement that its fitted, not that it works in conjunction with the lights so a separate switch for wash is all that's needed. The real pain will be converting the wiring over but even that wouldn't be that hard.

I'm not surprised really.  I know guzzlers don't sell very well at the moment, but I reckon it was priced to sell.

As a side note, went to wembley on Saturday.  >:( Drove nearly 500 miles in the day and all I can say is wow.  The v6 never ceases to amaze me with its power. 

I got 28 mpg on the way down and 24 coming back. (cruise was set a bit high coming back lol.)  ;). If I drove it at between 65-70 it would return 30-32 mpg.
