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...

      Loving home sought, must sell through no fault of its own etc.
      I have a 54000 miles (ish) 2002 K11 Micra 1.0 CVT 'S' for sale, it has factory alloy wheels and an aftermarket stereo/CD player (not too bad actually). For the uninitiated, the CVT gearbox is like a twist and go jobby, put your foot down and you whisk off surprisingly quickly for a 1.0! There are no gears as such, but there is a sport button - and it actually makes a difference! A surprising one. It being a 2002 facelift K11, you get a better ignition system (no dizzy, individual coils etc), a sleeker look, doorcards that the fabric peels off of and a CVT gearbox that is not made out of cardboard like the earlier N-CVT types. The engine is chain driven, so no belts to worry about.
      I bought this in April for mum to mooch around in as she's having a difficult time just now, a few mobility and financial issues (not a great combo!) and so I bought this for her, but also for me to mooch about in when I don't want to use the Hearse. It's no longer required as mum's situation has improved, and she's now bought herself something. So I have Nubbins back, but need the funds back from it which is sad because I really quite like it. A big surprise to me, IS NOT SHIT! My sister had these for her first few cars back when they really weren't worth anything, hers were all totally shit and she accidentally did quite well with the bangernomics philosophy, binning them when they were about to fall apart into small rusty pieces, needed a clutch etc.
      So, it has almost full-service history, it was MOT'd and serviced in March this year, it had a new full exhaust system in 04/2017 (even though only the rear box was blowing) and a full set of tyres in 08/2017, a new LHS caliper in 2016. It seems to have been very well looked after by the PO and previous owners, the PO had it since 2015 (the invoice for £2245 is in with the SH) but their dog got too big to fit in it! So, the logical thing to do was get a Skoda Roomster, cos they're roomy right? It's in the name and everything. My gain, I won the ebay auction for a smidgen over a grand, and when I picked it up the PO was very apologetic that it had an empty petrol tank, so gave me £50 for fuel - lovely people they were. The lady's husband (yes, a careful lady owner - not ragged or anything) had a collection of stuff, a Disco 3 (Shit rather than shite methinks), Volvo P1800 (gorgeous), S-Type and Merc C250d estate that had been to the moon and back. That's not mentioning the farm shite, many pieces or machinery, tractors, agricultural items I didn't know what they were etc.
      Apologies for the dirty, shit pictures - I haven’t had time to clean it yet and it still has a load of mum’s crap in there! Will clean, tidy and post better pictures when time allows - possibly Monday.


      The drivers front wing has a dent, the door card fabric has come unstuck from the card itself and there is a small crack in the front bumper RHS lower corner (wasn't there when I bought it!). Otherwise it is a very smart little thing, with low miles, no rust that I have found (or been reported at MOT time) and so should keep motoring on for some time. Mum has been all over the south west in it, I have been up to Bristol and back once a week for the last month (160 mile round trip) so have total confidence in it - it will sit at 70+ on the motorway quite nicely, although steep hills make it a bit revvy and noisy. It's a 1L though bruv, innit.
      It owes me £1K, I need to sell it to pay for university tuition fees and need the funds back for this purpose. Any shiters want a punt? Offers accepted. Is located in East Coker, Somerset and isn’t taxed or insured atm.

      I have a Vespa PX. I love it. I commute daily on it.



      I don't have a bike license so I'm riding around on L plates which I'm finding frustrating given that I appear to better understand the rules of the road than 99% of other drivers. Or at least I know how to break them politely. Also I'd like to take a passenger from time to time.

      I'd like to take my bike test, direct access ideally, and I fully understand it's safety training as well, but £700? Ain't gonna happen. I'd like to do it myself on my Vespa, and given that it's a 125 and manual I could do restricted licence test on it couldn't I? NO! I hear you say! Why not? Because bureaucracy. How dare they take away my rights? You could probably fund the NHS with the money that they'd save by not ruining my life etc..

      So enter the LML.. A copy of the Vespa Made under license in India. It's identical in all but name and some suspect quality electrics. WCPGW? Because of modern regs, they've got a cat and hence a bit slower in standard form than the PX that they're based on, until you unleash an extra 10th of a horse by drilling a heart shape in the air filter. True story.



      So anyway, given that they're identical only slower, you couldn't possibly take your bike test on one could you? WRONG AGAIN! YOU CAN!! Apparently it's hard to hit the 31mph required for the MOD 1 test, but I think the naysayers aren't trying hard enough. WCPGW?

      ​So enter an ad on an owners forum. LML, 2 stroke (essential), 2000km, 2 years old, "broken right indicator". £MEGA BARG. I bought it about 2 months ago. Unseen obvs. The only problem is that it's 120 miles away. Several idiots on shiply claimed that they could collect it for reasonable money before changing their minds on time/date/ location. The vendor is a gent, a minister no less, and has been incredibly patient. However as God's birthday is approaching he was becoming less flexible making it harder to co-ordinate with a courier. Van hire seemed expensive and something about him told me that his arms to would be too weak to help me lift it in to a van.

      FUCK IT! Train booked. I"M GONNA RIDE IT HOME. IN DECEMBER. Forecast says rain all day tomorrow. WCPGW??

      Just about an hour ago I went to start my car up, had Mrs Dustman with me, to go and pick Miss Dustman up from work. Turned over fine but took a while to fire up.
       
      Steering felt heavy. Thought maybe as it's currently -5 + wind chill it's just cold & the fluid is thick.
       
      Started reversing out my bay then I was greeted with:
      "DING DONG" - ABS fault.
      "DING DONG" - ESP fault
      "DING DONG" - headlamp auto levelling not working, contact service.
       
      I shut the car down straight away and we went in Mrs D's Corolla.
       
      Alternator is less than 2 months old, it's a recon unit from Alternator Man in Portsmouth. Hoping the cold isn't killing the battery and it's taking the 'nator out with it (battery passed the drop test last time the no-charge warning came up). Looks like a session with the multimeter after work tomorrow.....
