Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Other Volkswagen Models 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 91,000 miles
The above vehicle (VW Bora PDTDi) suddenly broke down after years of problem free motoring. It is currently at my VW dealers who inform me that the engine mount has sheared off causing the engine to drop and move sideways into the cambelt, causing this damage also. I have been told the vehicle needs a new engine and that this is not a problem that would have been diagnosed at regular service. The VW dealers are unable to tell me what has caused this unusual problem. Would you recommend a reconditioned engine in my vechicle, or would I have any comeback on VW themselves (the veh is not under warranty) I have been quoted 3.5k PLUS fitting the the new engine - the car itself is only worth about 2.5k max.
