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...

      Going to try this on here before the fun that is eBay or similar.
       
      My mum has recently replaced her trusty old SportKa with a newer 500 and currently it’s just sat in the garage.
       
      It’s only done 38k with I think mum being the third owner plus a very large file of bills. As you can see from the MOT history ‘a lot’ of miles have been done in the last few years....! Has the leather interior, an aftermarket Bluetooth kit, Air Con that works and four good tyres plus working remote key.
       
      It has had some attention by a welder in the past but the filler area is solid and other than a few obvious bits on the sills and corners of the rear bumpers is in nice condition.
       
      If anyone is interested please let me know. I’m back there later this week so can look at the paperwork or anything else on the car in more detail.
       
      She’s looking for about £750-800.
       
      Car is currently SORN and located in deepest Lincolnshire (near Spilsby).

      My attempt at living a shite free life has failed. Trawling e bay/ gumtree again etc but I thought I'd put out a wanted ad here. I've been browsing the for sale threads, but is there anything your thinking of moving on and would like to keep in the fold and have a hassle free sale? I'd consider anything but something fundamentally ok with a bit of MOT would be great. There is a bit of a strange condition- unusually I'm free this Wednesday and rarely at all other times- so being able to collect during the day this Wednesday would be perfect.

      Copied over from Shite In Miniature...
      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.
