what engine to buy?
« on: May 21, 2019, 12:32:25 PM »
Hi, i did a few searches but couldn't find the answer to this although I'm sure I've read it here somewhere.

Seat alhambra 1.9tdi 1999 81kw.

finally thrown a conrod right through the front of the block. probably my fuel pump alteration techniqu :P
but think it may have been when it redlined when turbo blew. anyway, I need to buy a new motor but couldn't remember how to tell what  engine it is. it is the type with ought the injection loom.

Thank you for all of your help on the last issues.

Tristan

Tell us more about how you altered the fuel pump. Are there benefits to modifying the pump please
I drive a Seat Alhambra 1.9Tdi which has 115bhp and an automatic gearbox.

I am happy to help you with all your questions. I am not a qualified mechanic but seem to be better at fixing my car than even the most experienced garages.

I have lots of friends here and very much enjoy talking with you all.

Always remember, a motor car is a serious tool and should be treated with respect. Put your safety first, always.

Hi There, thanks for the replies, I only changed the seal (rubber gasket) on the upper and lower sections of the fuel pump. i was unable to get it running properly again before the engine went unfortunately. It takes very very fine adjustments as the engine is running and then when you tighten the 4 fastening bolts it always moves slightly out.
Not a simple job, that's what i found anyway.

Many thanks Chris

His there any other way that i can confirm that it is an AFN before committing to buy and ship the engine? anything that is unique on the engine that would make it stand out from the others?

Just make sure it comes with a good warranty. You hear all sorts of horror stories about junk reconditioned engines. It sounds like a very big procedure, changing the engine

There would have been a sticker on the top edge of the cam belt cover if it's still legible or try your registration document where it says variant this should be the code.
