SOURCE: how to wire in vw abf engine 2.0L 16v in to fuse box.

You'll need to use the wiring from the 2.0L motor. Your best bet is to get Bentley manuals for the car the motor came from and for yours. They have very very detailed wiring diagrams, to do the swap.

SOURCE: VW Golf Mk4 1.4 16v Oil Light Warning on Dash

Measure your oil at normal operating temp, without the engine running of course. This will give you a more accurate reading once the oil has circulated in the system.

The system works like this:

  • With the ignition on, the oil pressure indicator light on the dash should come on and flash. Once the engine is started, the light should go out and stay out as long as the engine is running.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 0.3 bar or 5 psi when the engine is running below 2000 rpm, the light will flash.
  • If the oil pressure drops below approximately 1.8 bar or 27 psi when the engine is running above 2000 rpm for more than 3 seconds, the indicator light will flash and the buzzer will sound.
If either this two warnings occur:
  • The engine should be switched off immediately and the oil level should be checked.

SOURCE: my vw golf 1.6 16v is leaking oil, when u take

That is the recirculating tube that comes from the engine block. Oil can come out of it on only 2 occasions:
1 - the level of the oil is way too high - either you have put too much (take it out) or the coolant spills in the carter (major malfunction, the engine is about to die).
2 - the engine is so worn out that the back pressure that escapes from the cylinders takes the drops of oil that are spewed by the crankshaft with it out of the carter - the engine is practically dead.

Check the actual oil pressure with a gauge to see if there is a problem internally such as the oil pump.

If your oil is at the correct level, then the oil level sensor is not working correctly. If your oil level is low, then you need to fill it to the correct level

Compression ring oil gap


4th per inch diameter of bore is the norm for a water cooled engine .so your bore is roughly 3 inches from memory so a ring gap of 12 to 15 th ,check the thickness of the ring in the piston groove as well as up and down movement can and will cause excess oil consumption .give the bore a hone as well with a special honing tool ,not that expensive from a motor factor .

Need assitance for vw repair


You are probably right, the clearance between the pistons and the valves is very tight on the 16 valve engines. one of the valves may have hit a piston., or even worse bent a rod or damaged the crank.
I would run a compression check, or leakdown check before pulling the head. I have a service manual for 90-93 Passats w/ 9A 16 valve engines. the manual says compression should be 145-189 psi. limit 109 psi w/ 44 psi max difference between cyclinders.

On these engines you also need to check that the timing on both cams is ok.

VW Scirocco engine in Audi Fox


Yes, but... I'm guessing you're likely trying to install a more powerful engine, such as the VW 16v from the later Scirocco mk2 ('83 to '89, and I think the 16v was available from '85 or '86). The basic blocks are very similiar; on earlier engines most if not all bore, stroke, and bearing dimensions are the same in same years and displacement, allowing one to use Audi connecting rods (stronger the the VW rods), and some other assorted benefits. Your first major complication is the crankshaft. The VW engine and transaxle is oriented transversly, the Audi's is fore and aft. Different transaxle and entirely different clutch mechanism. The Audi's clutch is fairly traditional, but the VW's is sort of reversed, with the pressure plate operated by a push rod running throught the center of the mainshaft. Result of which is; the crankshaft nose is different. You'll either need to machine the VW crank to mate to the Audi clutch assembly, or swap the Audi crank into the VW block. For reference, I strongly recommend Bentley Repair manuals; these are basically factory manuals sold to the public. For more and better information as to your specific intent, I suggest you try to find local VW or Audi clubs, or a really experienced VW/ Audi repair shop. A good mechanic who has been worked on these machines for years can probably help you get targeted on exactly what you will need to acquire to do the exchange. As I said, it's helpful that VW and Audi are so closely related, I'd guess it's a fairly simple process, bearing in mind that "simple" in context means an engine teardown and rebuild, installing the correct fuel injection and engine management components in the Fox, etc. And finally, if you do this swap; don't forget that more power brings other complications. You'll want to upgrade your brakes at least, and probably other suspension gear. Hope this helps, good luck.
