Mechanical break down warranties recommended

We are huge advocates for mechanical breakdown insurance, and this week has highlighted the importance., we have four big engine jobs queued at the moment, all eligible for a warranty policy, only two have…

These pics are of a GTI Golf that’s travelled less than 120,000kms.  Presented to us for the first time with an engine light on and a light tapping from the engine.  This is a very common fault of a Mk V GTi.  Unfortunately someone has replaced the fuel pump (Tappet) plunger on this one but the damage was already done.. The unsuspecting new owner has picked up an expensive fix, requiring a new camshaft, fuel pump and associated parts to get things up and running again.

Other jobs on the go include failed cams on an RS4, Nil compression on a V6 A4 Audi, and another MK V Gti with Nil oil pressure at idle, maybe some future blogging to happen here once we open them up…..
