Ready to race!
Strikes again! 2011 120k no indication of an issue. Drove to work 7 miles got ready to leave and car didnt want to start. I got it to crank up and drove it 3 miles to my friends vw shop. Car still ran wouldnt rev past 1500k but i got it to the shop. He told me best case is chain and tensioner i told him do the rails also while in there. Should be ready monday if the valves arent trashed. It sounded like dogshit and the motor looked like the bushing were gone from the motor mounts it was about to jump otta the car. Luckily i had 1500$ saved up for the ko4 i was going to buy...i had planned on doing the tensioner at home but guess i waited a bit too long..will report back monday with tje good news..
Sorry to hear man. Can you share a brief history of the car and maintenance? Original owner? I am just turning the clock on 100K and am starting to feel quite anxious about this?
