    Winter Beater Extraordinaire. $1500 2010 VW Tiguan Content.

    So thanks to Adam I have officially run out of room to park Volkswagens. He told me about a Tiguan at VW that apparently needed an engine.

    After Adam approved of my enquiry about the Tiguan (his heart was set on it before finding out about the engine) this was the conversation with Bert's son.


    "The old man say take it away for 1500"

    "1500?"

    "Yes"

    "Like one thousand five hundred?"

    "Yes"

    "Are you sure?"

    "Yes"

    "Awesome. What's wrong with the engine?"

    "Sometimes the oil pressure light comes on"

    "It still runs?"

    "Yes"

    "See you tomorrow!"

    Car started without a boost in -25C after sitting for who knows how long. Runs ok right now. No weird noises. Drove fine. AWD works. 220xxx KM.

    Did I mention this is a 4motion Highline Model with the Sport Package?

    Anyways, on to a couple pics.







    The black leather interior is in nice shape. Just needs a good cleaning.


    Only needs rear brakes and an exhaust clamp for a safety.





    I guess I should start looking for a new engine!

    nice pickup... faulty oil pressure warning switch or wiring?

    Get an OBD2 reader that displays engine gauges and you can see what pressure it is running at.
    ALL THE HONDAS!!!

    Already bought a mechanical gauge. Apparently the transmission has to come out to remove the main bearing caps. So I'll probably just be sourcing another engine. Cars with the correct engine go for around $1500 CDN at auction.

    Yeah, worth around $9000. I'm just going to keep it. It's so fancy compared to my other cars.

    Nice match to the r36. Much more of A respectable auto than the wagon......

    I've been driving the Tiguan pretty much every day since I got it. But the Oil Pressure light has been getting annoying.






    YUP.

    Replacement engine should be in tomorrow. The engine didn't make a single sound out of the ordinary.

    Any ideas on what that's from or does that require further tear down?

    It will require a lot more tear down. You can't even see the connecting rods since the upper oil pan / griddle is in the way. Lots of shit to take off still. I'd like to find out, but I'm way too busy for that right now.

    I love how bad that looks and you couldn't even notice anything driving, felt just like any other normal vehicle, wild.
