Used Volkswagen Engine

  • The Volkswagen engine is the heart of your car and converts petrol or diesel in to movement. You can buy replacement engines for typically 30-40% less than a new one.
  • Make sure you need a full VW engine before replacing. A replacement engine isn’t cheap so it’s worth fully ruling out items such as Valves, Pistons, Crankshaft, Connecting Rod and the Oil Sump. All of these things can cause significant wear and tear on your engine and could be the underlying problem.
  • Whilst there could be some ability to crossover engines; make sure you match your car to the correct and suitable replacement, even if you are looking to upgrade. 
  • Most Volkswagen engines will include cylinder heads, camshafts, valves, valve springs and an intact head gasket although it’s always worth checking. If the Engine doesn’t include these parts, it may be referred to as a ‘short block engine’.
