First collection - Passat now 4 sale £200

Recommended Posts

Gaffer tape it up. If it holds ok it is a mere air inlet trunking pipe.

 

If it immediately bursts off when you start, it is part of the turbocharging circuit.

 

Looking at the rest of it imsuspect option 1 is more likely. Tape it up and see what happens

No turbo on this as it's a 2.0 pez.

Pretty sure that's a breather pipe from the rocker cover, gaffer tape it up and forget about it, doesn't do too much other than recycle the breather fumes, in fact, if you rev the car you'll most likely see a little bit of smoke come out of it as is guess there's a touch of wear at that age.

 

Don't scrap it, is be interested myself mainly for the interior.

That broken pipe looks like it could be something to do with the crank case vent system.

 

Whatever it is needs fixing properly otherwise you'll have a massive vacuum leak.

 

I would check all the rubber/plastic pipes for cracks and splits as the car is more than 10 years old (and German)

 

P.S. nice seats.

Thanks all.

 

Mostly joking about scrappage, not least because if it came to it I'm sure I'd get plenty more at auction anyway. It's certainly staying for the time being.

 

Offending pipe has been taped so I'll how it holds up.

The seats are the best thing about it.

Wow.

 

Anyway Dan, that's a breather pipe of some description, probably from the crankcase, hence why the inside has a load of mucky old oil in it. Its job is to vent excess gases from the crankcase into the intake where they can be burnt off. If the engine is in good condition and you don't drive it everywhere at maximum attack, it shouldn't be generating a lot of crankcase pressure anyway.

 

You can try taping it up, you can try bodging it up with a piece of similarly sized rubber pipe, or you can just buy a replacement, they seem to be cheap enough on ebay, though I haven't googled that extensively (the 2.0 engine seems a lot less common than the diesels and 1.8 turbos). It seems to be upwind of the throttle body so won't cause vacuum issues, and if you leave it the worst that's likely to happen AFAIK is that it'll gradually cover the engine in dirty oil. You should plug the intake side of the pipe up if you do leave it though, to stop unfiltered air getting into the engine.

Leaving it open royally fucks up the breathing circuit's pressure equilibrium, which is detrimental to smooth running

and leads to increased fuel consumption because the car will try to compensate for it by enriching the mixture.

This needs to be fixed and it needs to be fixed properly.

From the pics it looks to be downstream of the airflow meter, so that could be true. But it could equally make no difference; I found that the breather pipe on my Mondeo was shagged when I had the inlet manifold off to change the plugs, so I fixed it. It ran fine before and ran identically fine afterwards.

 

Still, as I say, the part seems to be about 20 quid, so fixing it would be the best option.

Right folks. Reality is setting in and so this has to move on, not least because my wife really doesn't like it... £200 to those of this parish since that's what I paid and it's cheap at that, might even bridge for more. Could someone tag it as for sale please?

 

Bad - slightly crunchy gearbox, taped up exhaust, slight stutter under hard acceleration, probably needs new battery.

 

Good - MoT til September, starts & runs well, full grey leather interior in top condition, all electrics work, decent tyres all round, totally massive inside, heated seats, fully working 6 CD changer + tape deck

 

140k miles, located in Redditch, can pick up from station, taxed to get you home etc. RY05 UFS.

Can I claim this on behalf of my mate and his soon to be sacked off money pit mk5 Golf?

 

We reckon it will be ideal for his needs, once we stick a gearbox in it.

You are 200 miles from us, so it would be next weekend, if that is suitable?

 

Cheers. :-)

Hello Dan does this mean the Delta is staying?

 

 

For another couple of months yes, but not too much longer depending on what I can find next. My ideal scenario would be to find an interesting sub-£1k estate or saloon with lots of wood & leather that I can run as my only car since I only need to do maybe 2000 miles a year these days. When I do find the right one, hopefully asap after this Passat goes, then I'll look to move the Delta. I do really like the Delta and I've even treated it to a new cambelt a couple of weeks ago, plus discs & pads which were needed, but it doesn't make sense for me to keep running it given my massively-reduced annual mileage. Will keep you posted.

I'd like to get it gone before March 5th to save renewing insurance, send me a message and hopefully we can find a date that works.

 

Thanks :-)

How about my proper Rover 75 Connoisseur SE, in Copperleaf Red / Sandstone piped leather and being an early car has the proper walnut dash.  It's as comfy as a Bentley in there.

 

In a couple of months, obv.

I’ll speak to him and send you a PM, mate.

Apologies for any potential delay. I am but the middle man. :-)

That does sound pretty much spot on, yeah.

Have sent PMs to those that have expressed an interest, thanks all. Can't really hold it on reserve given it's so cheap and we are all just strangers on t'interweb after all, but if anyone wants to come see it any evening/weekend except this saturday then send me a message, if we can work out a suitable time I'll of course hold it long enough for that.

 

Also I forgot to add to my issue from a couple of weeks ago, thanks to all for the advice then, I did just tape up the offending plastic pipe and it's not made any difference to anything as far as I can tell, so all good there I think.

It's just space reasons unfortunately, I've got a 2 car drive so allowing one for the wife too I can only really have one car for me and I've got two at the moment, one of which is probably irritating various neighbours depending where on the street I've left it that day... and as much as I quite like this passat, I just don't love it enough to make it my only ride.

SOLD

 

A friend was having some turbo issues with his astra diesel so he snapped this up. Thanks all for the interest and advice, much appreciated.

 

Now I sort of have room for a replacement, so fingers crossed for that rover roffle...

      Note for future reference...  I've decided most of my Matchbox (-sized) cars can go.  It's a vast collection,   Most have been repainted at least once - by me, obviously.  My eyes and hand aren't good enough to do them again.  I've got way too many to list so ask if there's something you want and if I've got it, we can do a deal.  Most will be 50p each plus postage, so it'll make sense to build up a parcel.
       
      I thought it best to do this, then I'm not clogging up the main thread.  This could well go on for months.

      My collections doing my head in, got too many coming & not enough room, so things need to go, & the first in this cull is the skort... 

      Has a years MOT, was 1 owner till I got it a few weeks ago, done 150k, but been over serviced (inc 2 timing belts within 10,000 miles, a water pump, a clutch & a recent battery. It starts & runs well, with only a small amount of CVH rattle (been semi using it as a daily & I'm surprised at how many looks & comments it gets). MOT guy said its running cleaner than most moderns (did you hear that government? WELL DID YOU?). It has run on a few times, & when I checked the plugs they were sooty, so I'm guessing the pistons are a bit coked up due to the previous OAP doing 3-5 miles once a fortnight for the last however many years. Likely solvable with a bit of water injection.

      The battery tray does leak depending what angle you park it at in the rain, so that could use a weld, or a jolly good masticing.

      Its no oil painting, various dinks, scuffs & scrapes & rust (rear arch), a worn through drivers bolster, a cracked door card. The boot strut mounting bracket has cracked, so the strut pops off (chunk of wood included).

      Functionality-wise, the passenger windows sticking (motor & mechs ok, just needs an adjust & WD), central locking goes mental, so fuse removed (likely dirty drivers door microswitch, same fuse as interior lights, so they aren't working because of it). petrol gauge not working (fill up, do 150-200 miles, then fill up again), rear wiper dead (the heated rear screen was deaded too, but it's suddenly working, so possible cracked loom at the boot hinge).
      Other notes.. The front wishbone bushes needs doing, the shocks are tired, the NSR wheel locks up under heavy braking, so either needs adjusting or shoes, the front tires are out of balance at 60-70*mph. It has 4 different keys, one for each lock, both screen rubbers are perished & there's some milkiness to the front one in a couple of places (has a heated screen, but doesn't seem to work)... It's mostly easy but fiddly stuff, easy to deal with if you've got time, but in reality I don't, & I keep spending more & more time on it which is taking time away from other projects.

      I could stick it up for eleventy billion pounds seeing as it's a classic Escort, but it's up for a bargain £699, fellow shitters will get it for less.

      I may swap for a Transit sized van (post 2001 for LEZ reasons, or anything petrol), but, I`d much rather have wonga due to space issues.

      Its giving the feeling that it`d happily drive anywhere indefinitely, and last another 5-10 years. I wouldn't be concerned about driving it across the country.

      In EN5 bit of that there London, just off M25 & A1.

      Sadly I'm selling my Grandfathers Rover 45 on his behalf due to ill health and also having the DVLA take away his Driving licence. 
      It's a 2002 1 .4 Impression 2 in Met Red. 85,000 miles. Remote locking, Leccy front windows. PAS, factory CD player. An AC. 
      It has some battle scares to both bumpers  and a couple of minor dents but polishes up decently. Interior clean and tidy. Still has a full set of genuine wheel trims, mudflaps and rubbber floor mats fitted too. 
      He brought the car in 2013 and it has been a good car on the whole with mainly local trips to the shops etc but has been on a few longer runs over to Wales.. It did suffer a headgasket failure in July 2017. Which he had repaired to the tune of £708! I have the receipt for the work carried out which inc a new Cambelt kit too. 
      We have had the car for over a month and had intended on advertising it sooner, but as my Grandad got admitted to hospital then my Van broke down and the Cav failed the Mot. It got pressed into service and we added over 1,500 miles without complaint. 
      My brother just had a new set of front discs and pads fitted last week as they were past there best.
      I have the V5 and some recent paperwork but my Grandmother can't find the current Mot certificate but it's not really a issue and is available online to view. 
      Pricing this is difficult.  As this is for my Grandad and the money will hopefully go towards a mobility scooter or his care. 
      He wants £500 and can be viewed at WS9, Aldridge or possibly at DE12, Measham if preferred.
