It’s not a 2.0. They have a terrible rep. Won’t get near them.
The Golf is a 1.8 turbo. Year 2000. Car just barely broke 100k mi.
That’s what I thought. But I’m afraid of wasting my time. I could push and shove it into the garage and het some heat. With bent valves wouldn’t the guides be damaged?
I would think that my thumb may get sucked IN. Intake stroke and both valves should be closed. And w a decending piston ....
I’m quite sure it’s an interference engine.
But again the 5cyl Rabbit is attractive. Black just like her Golf, stick, looks about the same (a bit more aerodynamic) and only $2.5k.
Hope to get the Toyota Sienna on the road first. Will take it in tuesday.
