I have a volkswagen passat 99 1.8 turbo. A week ago I noticed the car started shaking, and also a vacuum hose was broken. I replaced it, change the spark plugs, but the car still shakes. I took it to a mechanic and he told me that cylinder#2 had low compression (80), he suggested to change the engine. Should I go ahead and change it or should I try to have it rebuilt. Also does the broken hose have to do anything with the compression?
Thank you so much for your help.
have the same problem?
