  1. Given your good compression, the piston rings/bores and valves are sealed well. So where is the oil coming from?? Take the inlet manifold off and see if it is full of oil? Is the breather blocked or is there too much oil in the sump?
  2. Some pointers in the Ross Tech wiki - if you have VCDS: http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index.php/VW_Golf/Jetta/Bora_(1J/9M)_Immobilizer
  3. Something missing?

    Hi Mikhoo, The battery is missing!! The small round connect (last photo) and purple centred plug (second photo) look like they could be from an after-market alarm or something - it doesn't look factory VW. From memory - the only things around that area on the engine are: Cam sender (three pin) next to rear cam wheel Auxiliary water pump (on back or engine - under the large engine wiring connector) Distributor/coilpack (coil pack uses a five pin connector, I've never seen the distributor version) Remove the engine plastics and you will see a bit more...

  5. VR6 lower timing case seal

    Part number '068198171' is a repair kit: http://www.oemepc.com/vw/part_single/catalog/vw/markt/RDW/modell/COR/year/1995/drive_standart/76/hg_ug/103/subcategory/2030/part_id/3685688/lang/e#sec_17 VW Heritage list the Repair kit at £40: https://www.vwheritage.com/051198011a-crankcase-gasket-set-16v-most-9a-vw-spare You could try your local dealer - you may be surprised/horrified at the price - but still worth an ask?
  6. R32 mk3

    Keep scrolling down... You are looking for g3vr6ecu95on.pdf - this describes the OBD2 engine wiring for the Mk3. This document matched the wiring loom from a 1997 VR6. Also you would need to look for one representing the Mk4 - maybe g4bdeecu.pdf ?? Are you trying to put your Golf3 sensors on the new BHE engine (reasonably simple), or put the BHE engine and sensors/ECU/Immobiliser/clocks into your Mk3?
  7. R32 mk3

    Also, have a rummage here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B_V9-6xfgGlINzhhM2IyNmItOWRhZS00MzBkLTk2MTEtNGIyZDFmMDg0NWM2 Golf 3 documents start g3, Golf 4 start g4... Have fun!
  8. No Speedo

    Do the rest of the clocks work ok? Is it just he speedo? From memory, the speedo works on a square wave signal whose frequency represents the vehicle speed. Start with the vehicle speed sensor (identified as G22 on wiring diagrams) on the gearbox - pin 3 should be ground - pin 1 should be 12v with ignition on - pin 2 is speed signal which goes to dash through the fusebox (G1/11 on Mk3/Corrado CE2) If the wiring seems ok, can you remove the sensor from the gearbox and manually activate it? (is the sensor working, just not driven by the gearbox?) I've not actually seen the sensor, so winging this bit... Good luck!
  9. Cluster issues please help

    It sounds like it isn't the cluster! What do you mean be "everything dies" the minute you start? Does the engine run normally? Is it just the display that doesn't work when the engine is running? The lights and illumination are separate to the engine instrumentation. If you search t'internet for a PDF named g3vr6ecu95on.pdf, you should find a 10 page PDF describing the OBD2 engine wiring for the Golf3/Vento. The cluster is depicted on the last two pages. You could mark up the lamps that are working on the diagram and trace the wires to find something common to all when the engine is running. There is a lot of information to absorb, so take your time, understand what the diagram is illustrating and be methodical. Don't forget we are supposed to enjoy tinkering with these beasts!!
  10. Sloppy gear selector

    Shaun, It could be you need to reset the gear selection mechanism? Try this: I've never done it... Good luck!
  11. MK4 12v VR6

    Hi, Replacing your chains is do-able by yourself - its just a lot of work. See here for the gist of what it involves: http://www.vaglinks.com/Docs/VW/MKIV/BethAndJames.com_VW_VR6_12V_TimingChainReplacement_DIY.pdf I thought there was a how-to on here, but I can't find it...
  12. Fuel pump

    Those identifiers are standard. 31 is battery -ve 30 is battery +ve 15 is ignition - by turning the key X is load reduction - essential bits, while cranking the starter
  13. Fuel pump

    The A2 resource site is your friend: http://www.a2resource.com/electrical/CE2.html The fuel pump relay is in the fuse box housing position 12 - bottom right. The fuel pump is between pins M/01 (0v) and M/02 (switched 12v via Fuse 18). The ECU activates the fuel pump by making pin 6 on the ECU low. This energises the fuel pump relay passing 12v to the fuel pump.
  14. Help needed please.

    Hi, If you are doing all that work, I would say to get the most recent engine you can. Please don't underestimate the work (and space) required - it is truly time and money sapping! If you want a MK3 VR6, why not just get one that runs already? You will have all the parts then. Even more so, if you want the 4motion drivetrain, get a MK4/MK5 as a base. There are plenty of turbo/supercharger modifications documented on here, so have a rummage around. Good luck!
  15. What are these plugs for?

    The yellow plug looks like it could be the connector to the large resistor for the sidelights. The black connector could be for the auxiliary water pump, which should stand upright on the bracket for the large round connector - under the black plastic cover.
