Hi Everyone Had another thread to double check that my headgasket blew but after some testing, I'm now sure it has. Has anyone got any tutorials or photos on how to change them? I've searched high and low all day but can't find anything on google or here. It looks pretty straight forward but someone mentioned about the valves or cams that might need redoing, is this correct? Whilst I'm at it, I might as well change the cambelt so a how to for that would be nice too. Thanks guys
Had to call out rac due to my cambelt going on my 1.4s lupo, anyone got a rough idea of costs to repair? After being towed home, the recovery guy said he thinks my engine is possibly unsafe .. Soo I'm guessing its going to be good news! Cheers
Hi all, I am a new member on here! I didn't want this to be my first post (I had intended on pics of te car when I bought it etc) but I need some advice! I have recently bought a 2001 Lupo TDi which although in pretty good condition the service history is a little sketchy as to what has been done (or not), so, I decided it would be a good idea to change the timing belt and give it a service before using it as my daily and retiring my Mk2 to a somewhat sidelined role (ie selling it; much to my dismay)! What a ball ache that hydraulic tensioner damper thing is! Much prefer the newer design tens
According to my service history, the Lupo had its cambelt changed at 25,117 miles, in late 2008 so just over 4 years ago. Not sure why they had it done so early, but I was wondering when should I next get it done? The car is on 55k now.. Does this seem a bit weird that they changed it so early? I thought you didn't have to change it until 60k or something. Confused!
