I have a 98 VW beetle TDI, ALH motor. New clutch, new tires, new maf, new starter, new serp belt, new windshield.
The oil pan was punctured, and she kept driving causing the lifters to fail so it has not compression but with the valve cover off it is easy to see that the lifters are not moving like they should. Under the oil pan everything looks ok, but I have not had the head off.
Up until she hit something, it was getting about 50MPG, and ran very well. Would make a good parts car, or add a motor and a good dailey driver. Possibly swap the head and it might fix it.
Asking 2000 OBO
