Black specks on rear of sport.

Recommended Posts

Lol.

Maybe you have had the same work done and remembered the parts price?

All I'm aware of needing is head gasket + piston ring set?

Head gasket.

Head bolts.

Piston rings.

May as well do the bearings whilst they're out.

Possible honing of the bores.

Oil & filter change.

Coolant change.

Timing belt and water pump unless you know how new they are.

And that's just off the top of my head.

mines did this i now use a slightly thicker oil im using 15w40 which alot of the golf owners use with these problematic 1,4 engines which has by far reduced the amount of black spots on the rear end , if its running fine id try a thicker oil in there and check the results, but in the long run this will need doing as its a problem that i think all sports will suffer,

You're taking the pistons out.

You're changing the oil and filter. . . . . . . . . . regardless of how new it is.

Also add a tube of sump sealer onto there as well.

I'd run the 15/40 whilst you look for a new engine if I was you.

A 15w40 shouldnt make any difference to oil consumption to a 10w40 (or any other Xw40 for that matter)

If it's burning mostly on start up then the thicker viscosity does make a difference.

Its thicker when its cold than when its warm, so how can it get past the rings when its cold and not when warm?
