I wouldn't suggest it. It wouldn't be just an engine swap that you unplug and unbolt and and then reverse...thats not to say it can't be done with a lot of thinking and work and reprogramming that's usually for vw experts...your better off to keep looking at other wreckers for the exact motor

Hey bro, your diesel pump might be on the way out but here are some things to check and do and see if they help.

Replace the hoses going from the pump to the diesel filter with new ones.

Use fuel injector type clamps, NOT gear clamps they don't tighten enough to stop air not getting in.

Change the diesel filter, and make sure the drain on the bottom of it, if it has one which most do, is nice and tight.

Air bubbles in the injection lines are usually a sign of a weakening injection pump but I ran mine like that for a long time, the air works it's way through. Are you leaking any diesel? Maybe check the returns to the tank. Cheers bro.

My Diesel Golf lacks power and acceleration on hills, can you advise what the problem is?


The problem could probabely be the diesel filter, try replacing it.
If there's no difference thn best would be to service the injector pump and the nozzles.

Do not attempt to replace Valve guides. You will damnage your cyl. head. Take it to a machine shop and have them do that.

And injectors are to be replaced when they no longer work. Their is no matinance sched. for injector replacement.
