If you drain out the gas from tank and fuel lines and turn over engine the old one may work without replacing engine . Call a good junk yard to veify fit of used engine and transmission .

Please, buy a manual. The diagram is not one picture I could place here. There are more than 40 pages. And then the cautions, plug layouts and lots and lots of other stuff. The most basic diagram is in the user manual.

Will a 2 litre vw Golf 2011 diesel fit a 1.6 diesel 2011 Golf


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

If i have a diesel engine and my tank is 80 litre and put 70 litre diesel and 10 litre petrol in my tank what will happen to my diesel engine than


That depends on the amount added and the engine, yours would be 7 parts diesel to 1 part gas. I do not have the different effects on engines using different ratios of deisel to gas, I suspect the richer the mix ratio of gas to deisel, the more noticable the reactions will be. First off there are two immediate impacts of diesel fuel mixed with gasoline: the octane is lowered and the fuel vaporization is reduced. The lowered octane may cause the engine to knock. Some engines have knock sensors and the electronic controls that will adjust the timing and other engine conditions to try to control the knock. If the knock remains significant it can damage the engine by causing metal fatigue eventually leading to failure of critical parts like pistons, connecting rods, heads. Some very old engines (e.g. 1950's tractors) can accomodate lower octane, but the ones found in recent autos are normally running close to the knock threashold. The reduced volotitility caused by the added diesel will cause hard starting and will probably result in some unburnt hydrocarbons remaining in the exhaust gas from the engine; these may be reacted in the catalytic convertor causing it to overheat. A modern electronic controlled emission system controls the oxygen level in the exhaust gas going to the convertor so the significant increase in hydrocarbons with controlled oxygen may save the convertor, but will likely result in unburnt hydrocarbons exiting the exhaust. This will result in a smell and air pollution. Gas will also damage deisel fuel pumps as well.

I want to buy a used car that cost around $2000-$3000. What type of things should I look for? so the car can last for at least 5 years


a simple car that has no fancy electronics ,now i would suggest a peugeot 206 ,nice car petrol or diesel but diesel manual preferably ,citreon C5 diesel manual these cars run forever with regular oil change ,Ford focus with the endura diesel turbo ,great motor runs forever and its a ford so parts might be easier in your time zone ,nissan diesel is good but parts are mainly dealer only ? which can be expensive ,same goes for mazda although a lot of parts on a mazda are ford ,although my grandmother always made me promise not to buy japanese as my uncle was on the burma railway ..But i do think the ford is the best bet but dont overlook VW ,they are good cars as well a nice golf diesel very reliable ,keep away from big luxury cars like old jags or mercs nice when running till they go wrong ,same goes for detroit steel as well ,keep away from big gas guzzlers with a high CO2 output because i think that the american goverment will catch a cold soon with their pledge to cut greenhouse gases as i thnk other countries will start to place embargos against it soon unless they are reduced ,Also with the recent oil spill in the golf i do think the goverment will up the price of fuel to europeon prices before long to force these gas guzzlers off the road so get the emmisions down within the limits set by the toyoto convention .So think about the small diesel car and dont dismiss it .Price of petrol here is about 1.20 euros a litre so as an american galoon is about 4.2 litres as i remember imagine paying 5 dollars a gallon then go ahead with buying that V8 cheroke jeep with a auto box then compare it with a small diesel engined car turning out over 50 mpg

Petrol instead of diesel


Hi

This is not quite recommended, and to do a 100% job, you should really drain the tank, and refill with just diesel, and renew the fuel filter.

But if it is running acceptably, drive it gently, and keep refilling with diesel.

Good Luck !

Don´t forget to give me a FixYa rating please.
